Student Application Deadlines

A first-year applicant is a current high school senior, a high school graduate with no post-secondary course work or the recipient of a GED applying for matriculated/degree-seeking status at Hofstra University. First-year candidates may apply as Early Action or Regular Decision.

Early Action is a nonbinding early application and notification process for fall semester first-year students only. Students accepted via Early Action are not required to withdraw other college applications, but are required to notify Hofstra University of their intentions by May 1.

There are two rounds of Early Action as indicated in the chart below.

Regular Decision candidates are considered on a "rolling basis." While there is no deadline for regular decision applications, students are encouraged to apply early so as to receive the fullest consideration. Once an application and all supporting credentials are received, the application will be reviewed by our Admission Committee.

Application TypeSubmissionNotification
Early Action 1 November 15 December 15
