Early Decision II Notification Process (2018)

Leave a Comment

Early Decision II notifications will be released at 6pm ET on Thursday, February 15, 2018.

The Emory University Admission staff have reviewed a record-breaking EDII applicant pool. Please read on for full details on how these EDII decision notifications will be released.

How will decisions be released?

Decision notifications will be posted online through your applicant portal (apply.emory.edu/status). At 6pm ET on Thursday, February 15, log in to the applicant portal to receive your admission decision. Once logged in, (when available) at the top of the screen you will see a light yellow box with the title: Status Update. There will be a link to View Update, which is where you can see your online decision letter.

If you applied EDII to both Emory College and Oxford College, you will have one decision letter with information about the decision for each college in it.


Can I receive my admission decision notification in another format?

Decision notifications are only released through the applicant portal. We do not send admission decisions via email, and we are unable to release decisions over the phone.

But I heard decisions were released through OPUS?

If you have heard of OPUS (Online Pathway to University Students), this is no longer how decisions are released. OPUS is still used for students who applied for need-based financial aid.

What about need-based financial aid?

After your file has been reviewed and your financial aid eligibility determined, you will receive an email notifying you that your award package is available.  Your award notification will be sent to your email address marked as preferred within the OPUS Student Center. Please Accept/Decline your individual awards as appropriate and follow all instructions to ensure you fully understand your aid package, as well as all terms, conditions, and disclosures. The Office of Financial Aid must have received required documents by January 15, 2018 in order to receive an award prior to the March 1 enrollment deposit deadline. If you have questions about financial aid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid directly at finaid@emory.edu or 404-727-6039.

Why are decisions posted at 6:00 pm?

We believe that such important news should be experienced in the context of the home and family. We also do not want students to receive admission news in the middle of the school day. We understand that this time does not work for all of our applicants, including many international applicants, but 6:00 pm ET is a time when the majority of our applicants are available and with loved ones.

If you have any questions, feel free to post a comment to the blog or email us at admission@emory.edu.
