The Early Decision deadline is November 1 and applicants receive their admissions decision mid-December. Early Decision is binding, so those accepted are obligated to matriculate to Penn. The Regular Decision deadline is January 5 and applicants receive their decision by April 1. Applicants accepted during Regular Decision, or those deferred from Early Decision and accepted in Regular Decision, have until May 1 to accept our offer of admission.
