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!

It’s no surprise that the college admissions season is expected to be extremely competitive this year, especially after admission rates reached record-lows for the class of 2023. 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

At IvyWise, we aim to relieve some of the stress commonly associated with the college admissions process, and that includes bringing you the most updated information on early decision release dates every year. Our annual release date list is the most comprehensive and updated daily as new information becomes available. Be sure to check the links provided within the list for the most recent dates and information.

Here are early application decision notification dates for the Class of 2024. Expect these dates to change as we draw closer to mid-December. Check back regularly for updated date and times – especially for those without specific dates and times or those labeled “TBD.”
