Class of 2027 Regular Decision Notification Dates



Are you ready for regular decision notification dates? Admissions offices across the US are working hard to get through hundreds of thousands of regular decision college applications for the class of 2027 in order to notify students of their decisions this spring.

Class of 2027 Admissions

The college admissions landscape continues to be competitive at the country’s most popular universities, with many schools posting record-high application numbers for the class of 2027. Schools like the University of Virginia (55.845), University of Pennsylvania (59,00+), NYU (~120,000), and Bowdoin (10,934) all reported their largest applicant pools ever, with some schools like Boston University seeing record-high numbers of students applying Early Decision or Early Action. With large applicant pools, it is likely we will see admission rates at these schools remain low or even decrease. This also might lead to more waitlist decisions, as colleges continue to try to manage their yields.

When Do Colleges Release Admissions Decisions?

Most admissions decisions are released in late March. Students typically receive a notification from each individual school they applied to, either by email or in their application portal, when decisions are ready to be viewed.

Below, we have aggregated the most requested decision release dates. See a school we left out or an updated release date we haven’t included yet? Tell us in the comments below and we will add it to our list!

Many of these dates are general, so continue to check back regularly for more specific updates about when college admissions decisions will be released – especially for those labeled “TBD” or those with a general time frame (mid/late March, early April, etc.). It is also possible for colleges to post a release date only to move it up or postpone it to a later date, so these dates are subject to change.
