Early Decision, Early Action, and Early Decision II Notification Dates for the Class of 2024

Ivy Divider

college application seasonYou’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 since acceptance rates are lower than ever, which means college admissions is getting more competitive. 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 Wake Forest University, Tufts University, and University of Chicago, have two Early Decision deadlines. This way, if you are 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 2024 so you can be prepared for the timing of your admissions decision. Some schools announce their decisions in a portal, via email, and some even through snail mail (to which we say: why?). We update this list all the time, so make sure to check back in for new schools, changes, or additions!
