Wellesley Fall 2022 Admissions - Class of 2026

Applying to Wellesley in 2022? The deadline for Fall 2022 is January 8th. Last year, decisions were released on March 20th.

This is a space for the class of 2026 to connect with other applicants and share stats, news or admissions updates.

I have the deadline as January 8.

whoops - will change!

Does anyone have an updated regular decision release date?


Any RD hopefuls here? How are all of you parents and kids faring with the wait?

When is the release date?

No information about the release date on email or on the portal!

they came out on 3/20 (saturday) last year so I’m thinking maybe this saturday?

Yeah my guess is saturday 3/19! Especially since they removed the withdraw button from our portals and it doesn’t say that they are reviewing my application still so they’re definitely out soon!

Decisions are being released Saturday 3/19 at 10 am per an email Wellesley just sent out! Good luck everyone!


Thank you!
