2022-23 Early Decision and Early Action Notification Dates – Class of 2027

Ivy Divider

college application seasonSo: you’ve written your Common App personal statement, finished your supplemental essays, acquired recommendations from your favorite teachers, created a fantastic activity resumesent out your applications, crossed your fingers (and toes!), and now all you have left to do is wait for the results. And waiting is the wooorst!

Especially for the 2022-23 admissions cycle, with standardized tests remaining an optional part of the application for so many schools — or even done away with entirely. Many students decide to apply Early Decision as it is often their best chance to get into their top choice school. Luckily, some schools like Villanova University, Tufts University, and the University of Chicago have two Early Decision deadlines. This way, if you’re rejected or deferred from your top choice school, you can try your hand again at the early decision pool.

To make the wait a little less painful, we’ve compiled a list of Early Decision, Early Action, and Early Decision II deadlines for the Class of 2027, so you can be prepared for the timing of your admissions decision. Schools announce their decisions in a portal, via email, and some even through snail mail. We update this list all the time, so make sure to check back in for new schools, changes, or additions!

Here are the Early Decision and Early Action notification dates for the 2022-23 Admissions season:
