Regular Decision

If you wish to build in more time when weighing all of your college choice options, you may apply using our Regular Decision plan. If you want the flexibility of a traditional, nonbinding process, this is the plan for you. Applicants are able to apply to Emory College, Oxford College, or to both schools with the same application. The bulk of Emory applicants apply using our Regular Decision plan.

Important Notes

  • Students who apply to both Oxford College and Emory College will have their application reviewed independently and will receive an independent decision from each school.
  • If you have already submitted the Common Application to only Emory College or Oxford College, you may later decide you would like to be considered for admission to the other college. In order to be considered for admission to the other college, you must send an email to requesting your application be added to that college's applicant pool.
  • A student's application will not be complete and will not be processed until the Common Application, Questions and Writing Supplement sections of the Emory University "My College" tab, and application fee (or fee waiver) have been submitted. Applicants may check the status of their application materials at once these items have been submitted and processed.

A Note about Early Admission (Juniors Only)

Early Admission is an application option for high school juniors. Academically exceptional students who wish to enter college after completing the eleventh grade may apply for the Early Admission plan. Candidates are expected to complete all requirements of regular admission by the stated deadlines, as well as meet the same standards of eligibility. Please note that the most successful Early Admission candidates are those who have completely exhausted their high school’s advanced curricular offerings.
