class of 2021 early decision notification datesHere’s When Students Can Expect to Receive Regular Admission Decisions

Admissions offices across the US are working hard to get through hundreds of thousands of regular decision college applications for the class of 2023 in order to notify students of their decisions by the end of March.

The class of 2023 admissions cycle was another record-setting one, with some of the country’s top institutions, including Brown University, Yale University, Dartmouth College, and Tufts University, among others, 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 decisions once they’re ready, which can sometimes be a week or two before the standard decision release date.

Here are regular application decision notification dates for the class of 2023.

Many of these dates are general, so expect these dates to change as we draw closer to mid-March. It is also possible for colleges to post a release date only to move it up or postpone to a later date, so these dates are subject to change.

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