ED I Application Deadline Extension: In light of the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast, we are extending our Early Decision I deadline to Monday, November 5, to allow students in impacted areas more time to complete their application. Further information here. For students in the heavily impacted areas of New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut we will accommodate a further Early Decision I deadline extension of November 15. If you have any questions, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ED Application Hint: In order to ensure quicker processing of your ED1 or ED2 application materials, please indicate on each of your items that you are an ED applicant. Ex. John Doe, ED1 APPLICANT, DOB 01/01/1993.
Students who have selected Emory as their first choice and who wish to receive an admission decision early in the year may do so by applying for admission under one of two Early Decision plans. Both Early Decision plans are binding, meaning that if Emory admits you, and if Emory makes the education affordable, you must pay your admission deposit and enroll that next fall. You may apply Early Decision to only one school in any given application round. As an Early Decision applicant, you may submit Regular Decision applications to other institutions; if you later pay your Early Decision enrollment deposit to Emory, you must immediately withdraw any Regular Decision applications filed. Other than the application dates/deadlines, there is no difference between EDI and EDII; the admission review is identical for both options.
Admission and Financial Aid Application Deadline: November 5
Notification Date: December 15
Deposit Deadline: January 15
Note: ED I students interested in need-based financial aid must submit the CSS PROFILE and the previous year's tax documents by November 5.
Admission and Financial Aid Application Deadline: January 1
Notification Date: February 15
Deposit Deadline: March 1
Note: ED II students interested in need-based financial aid must submit the CSS PROFILE and the previous year's tax documents by January 1.
If cost is a factor, you should complete the CSS PROFILE and submit it to the processing center by the appropriate deadline. You also must submit complete copies of you and your parents' previous year's U.S. tax documents. No deposit extensions will be given to students who are waiting for financial aid information if those students applied for aid after the deadline.
The possible decisions resulting from an Early Decision application are acceptance, deferral to Regular Decision (ED I), wait list (ED II), or denial.
If attendance at Emory is contingent upon receiving a merit scholarship, do not choose either Early Decision option. Emory Scholar selections do not occur until April.
