Decide When to Apply

Early Decision

We offer two binding Early Decision options for students who feel that Rensselaer is their first-choice school.

The annual deadline for Early Decision I is November 1st, and the deadline for Early Decision II is December 15th.

If admitted under ED I or ED II, you are committed to enroll at Rensselaer (which requires a nonrefundable $500 deposit), as long as your scholarship meets your needs.

Immediately upon acceptance of your Early Decision admission offer, you must withdraw all other applications and make no subsequent applications.

In addition to earlier notification of your admission decision, you will also receive an earlier financial aid package.

Rensselaer does not offer an Early Action option.

Regular Decision

The deadline for our Regular Decision (non-binding) option is January 15th.

Physician-Scientist Program (B.S./M.D.)

The annual application deadline is November 1. Please note that you cannot apply Early Decision to the Physician-Scientist Program, and the application is non-binding.

Management-Law or Science, Technology and Society-Law Programs (B.S./J.D.)

The annual application deadline is November 1. Please note that you cannot apply Early Decision to the Accelerated Law Program, and the application is non-binding.

January Admission

We’re able to offer January admission to a limited number of students. The annual application deadline is November 1.

Applicants to our accelerated programs in law or medicine are not eligible for January admission.

Early Admission

We consider candidates who have completed all admission requirements and who wish to enter the university after the junior year of high school. Each situation is reviewed individually.

Students are expected to have the same preparation as any accepted freshman and should meet the freshman application deadlines.
