+These are not deadlines. You may apply after due dates have passed. However, if you apply after the due dates or if your file remains incomplete after due dates have passed, you will be withdrawn from admissions consideration if your school(s) of application meet enrollment goals before Undergraduate Admissions reviews your application.

^Applying to Rutgers by our fall early action date does not restrict students from applying to other colleges or universities, and Rutgers early action decisions are not binding. Early action applicants will receive one or more of the following notifications by no later than February 28: admitted, not admitted, wait list, or deferred to regular decision. Students deferred to regular decision remain in the applicant pool for final admission notification by no later than the end of March. Rutgers strongly encourages students deferred to regular decision to update their Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) with senior year grades by the first week in March.

#You must apply by no later than December 1 to be considered for honors and merit-based scholarships.

**Admissions notifications will be posted online via your Rutgers status screen no later than this date. Early action applicants will receive one or more of the following notifications by no later than January 31: admitted, not admitted, wait list, or deferred to regular decision. Students deferred to regular decision remain in the applicant pool for final admission notification by no later than the end of February. Rutgers encourages students deferred to regular decision to update their Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) with senior year grades by the first week in March. Note for applicants to Mason Gross School of the Arts: Because of portfolio review and auditions, early action and regular admission notification dates do not apply for applicants to Mason Gross School of the Arts. Mason Gross School of the Arts first-year applicants will be notified of admissions decisions by April 1.

++Transfer applicants to Mason Gross School of the Arts should closely review the audition dates listed here. Certain audition locations are only offered before the February 1 transfer application deadline.
