Important Changes effective Summer and Fall 2022:
Students will initially only be considered for the term they have listed on their application, summer or fall terms. Historically, we used to automatically consider students who did not meet our fall accepted student profile for the summer term. The yield for the summer offers fluctuated widely from year to year and largely contributed to the difficulties of predicting the size of our first-year class. As a result, we will no longer automatically consider fall applicants for the summer term. We are adding a deferral decision.
For the students who applied for the November 1st priority application deadline, we are dropping the summer offer and adding a deferral decision to the decisions released on February 17th. The three possible decisions are now:
For the students who applied for the March 1st Regular application deadline AND those that were deferred from the November 1st priority application group, we will release decisions in early April. A waitlist option has been added to this group of decisions, so the five possible decisions are now:

How does this impact your students? We plan on sending an email to all our summer and fall applicants and their family members explaining the changes in our admissions processes. All applicants will be provided with an opportunity to change the term on their application. If an applicant does not want to make a change, no further action is needed. Information on our admitted student profile for the fall and summer terms can be found on the Decision FAQ. Please note that since we will be enrolling a smaller class this year, the summer and fall profiles may be higher than in previous years. Our summer term begins June 20th and ends July 29th. Students that start in the summer automatically continue into the fall term beginning August 22nd. Those students that wish to make a term change to summer will be able to do so by logging in to their Application Status Check and completing an Application Change Form. The deadline to complete the Application Change Form will be December 8th.
