Application Deadlines

Bryant University accepts applications for Early Decision I, Early Action, Early Decision II and Regular Decision. 

Early Decision I - Nov. 15 
If Bryant is your student's first-choice university, we encourage him or her to apply Early Decision. In addition to receiving admission notification by Dec. 16, students who filed an estimated financial aid form will receive scholarship notification and an estimated financial aid package.

By applying Early Decision, students agree that, if admitted, they will withdraw all other college applications and enroll at Bryant University. A commitment deposit is due by Jan. 10, 2014.

Early Action - Dec. 2
If Bryant is one of your student's top choices, we encourage him or her to apply Early Action. In addition to receiving admission notification mid-January, students will receive scholarship notification along with their admission decision.

Early action is non-binding, which means students get early notification, but their commitment deposit is not due until May 1, 2014.

Early Decision II - Jan. 15
If during your student's college search, Bryant becomes his or her first-choice university after the Nov. 15 Early Decision I deadline, he or she still has the opportunity to be considered as an Early Decision applicant through our Early Decision II program. Applicants will be notified by Feb. 17, and will receive scholarship notification. Those who filed an estimated financial aid form will also receive an estimated financial aid package.

By applying Early Decision II, your student agrees that, if admitted, he or she will withdraw all other college applications and enroll at Bryant University. A commitment deposit is due by March 10, 2014.

All Early Decision applicants must submit the Early Decision Agreement Form .

Regular Decision - Feb. 3
Students applying Regular Decision will receive notification by the third week in March and must postmark their commitment deposit by May 1, 2014. Applicants will receive notification if they have been awarded a scholarship, and those who filed a FAFSA will receive a financial aid package.
