The college admissions season is flying by, and before you know it early admission decisions will be released. Here’s our annual list of early decision notification dates!

Once again, the college admissions season is expected to more competitive than ever, after admission rates reached record-lows for the class of 2022. It’s important that students know the benefits of applying in the early round – and the drawbacks – in order to find success in the admissions process. Students and parents also need to understand the latest admissions trends and how colleges are evaluating students’ applications.

Our annual release date list is the most comprehensive and updated daily as new information becomes available.
