Class of 2028 Early Action/Decision Notification Dates

A person exits a red brick building at Columbia University.

Previously Published on December 2, 2023:

When will the school you applied to in the Early Action/Early Decision round notify you of their decision? As it’s now early December, Early Action and Early Decision notification dates are right around the corner, marking the first admissions cycle following the landmark United States Supreme Court ruling outlawing the practice of Affirmative Action.

But there’s no need to refresh your inbox constantly. We’ll tell you when you can expect the school you applied to Early to post their decision in your portal, though these dates are subject to change as we move closer to the looming deadlines.
