class of 2021 regular decision notification dates-1.jpgHere Are the Regular Admission Decision Dates for the Class of 2021

 

As we draw closer to the middle of the spring semester, college across the country are working hard to get through hundreds of thousands of college applications to the class of 2021 in order to deliver regular admission decisions by the end of March.

The Ivy League has signaled that its common regular decision release date for the class of 2021 will be March 30, 2017. To see admission decision release dates from last year click here.

The class of 2021 had an interesting college admissions experience, with changes that included the launch of the Coalition Application in the summer of 2016 and the redesigned SAT implemented in March of 2016. Most early decision notification dates have passed, and for those who applied early decision or early action this year the competition was stiff, with some colleges reporting slight dips in early admissions rates from the year before.

The application cycle for the class of 2021 also saw an increase in applications at some of the country’s top institutions, with Harvard University, Yale University, Tufts University, and more reporting record-high application numbers.

Most colleges aim to have regular admission decisions ready by March 31 or April 1, but many choose to release admission decisions once they’re ready, which can sometimes be a week or two before the standard decision release date.

Here are regular decision notification dates for the class of 2021. Many of these admission decision notification dates are general, so expect these dates to change as we draw closer to mid-March.

Be sure to check back regularly for updated date and times – especially for those labeled “TBD” or those with a general timeframe (mid/late March, early April, etc.)
