EARLY DECISION I: Nov. 1
EARLY ACTION: Nov. 1
EARLY DECISION II: Jan. 1
REGULAR DECISION: Jan. 1
If Northeastern is your number one college choice, and you are committed to attending if admitted, Early Decision is the admissions program that is right for you. Early Decision is ideal for students who are confident that we are the right fit—academically, socially, and financially. Please note, Early Decision is binding—if you are admitted, you are committed to attending and required to withdraw all applications from other institutions.
Applying Early Decision this year comes with some clear and tangible benefits for those who consider Northeastern to be their number one choice. We expect to enroll up to half of our entering class through Early Decision—to calibrate, for the class entering Fall 2020, the ED admit rate was 32% compared to the overall admit rate of 20%.
