Information Regarding Early Action Decisions

We greatly appreciate all your work in helping students navigate the application process Now that decisions have been released, we wanted to share the decisions your students will receive.

Early Action applicants will receive one of three decisions:

  1. Admit– Students admitted right away into their major of interest or second choice major.
  2. Deferred to Final Review– Students are given the opportunity to submit additional academic information for consideration during our final review. They will receive a final admission decision on March 30. Learn more about how to assist your students through this process here.
  3. Deny– Unfortunately some students will not be considered competitive. If students are denied, we encourage them to consider applying in the future as a transfer student.

Congratulations to your admitted students!
