Early Decision

Early Decision and Early Decision II

Early Decision applicants that applied by December 1 will be notified of admission by early January 2014.

Due to the widespread disruption caused by software glitches within The Common Application, Syracuse University has created an Early Decision II option. The addition of a second Early Decision plan means that you can now submit an Early Decision application up until January 1, 2014. Early Decision II candidates will be notified of an admission decision by  early February. Financial aid applicants must also submit the CSS/PROFILE by January 1, 2014 and the FAFSA by February 1, 2014. Aid applicants will be notified shortly following admissions decisions.

The addition of Early Decision II will provide an option for students who view Syracuse University as their first choice but could not meet the earlier deadline.

Early Decision Agreement

Submission of the ED Agreement can be done electronically through the Common Application, or by filling out the PDF and submitting by mail or by fax to 315-443-8427.

Important Information

Early Decision and Early Decision II are binding, but only if you’re admitted to your first choice of college/program. If you’re admitted to your second or third choice, you’ll have until May 1 to decide.
