When Each College Posts Their 2019 Admissions Decisions 800 230 Theo Wolf

If you’re a high school senior, you’re likely going through the anxiety-inducing process of waiting to hear back from colleges. This post helps a little bit by at least giving you a better sense of when you’re likely to get their admissions decisions. Each school has its own notification date, and it can be a huge pain to figure out and keep track of when those notification dates.

That’s why reddit user u/cheesypig58707 took on the altruistic task of compiling a massive list of the notification dates at a variety of universities. We have provided a portion of that list below.

The bolded date is the official confirmed date, while anything in italics with HP next to it means “Historical Precedent.” That’s when these schools have sent the results out in the past and when you can expect them (but not for certain) to probably come out this year.

We’ve cut some schools from the original complete list to focus on the ones that are most relevant to our students (top 50 universities and liberal arts colleges, plus a few specialized schools, mostly from our full list here). For the complete list, see the original reddit post here.
