Regular Decision Notifications (2020)

Leave a Comment

Regular Decision notifications will be posted
on Wednesday, March 25, at 6:00 pm ET.


The Emory University admission staff have evaluated another strong year of Regular Decision applicants. Our admission committee has worked thoughtfully to admit what we believe is a strong next step in building the Class of 2024.


How will decisions be released? 
Decision notifications will be posted online through your Emory applicant portal ( On March 25, at or right after 6:00 pm ET, log in 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 RD 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.


What about need-based financial aid?
Your financial aid information will be available in the Financial Aid tile of OPUS approximately 24-48 hours after decision release. Learn more about setting up your OPUS account.

You will receive an email when your award is available to view in OPUS.

If you have missing financial aid documentation, your award will not be available by this date. Missing items are listed in the To Do’s list (in the Tasks tile). Required documents must be received by the Office of Financial Aid by April 5 in order to receive an award prior to the May 1 admission deposit deadline.

If you have any questions about financial aid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid directly at 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 students, but 6:00 pm ET is a time when the majority of our applicants are available and can be with loved ones.
