Here’s when you’ll (probably) find out if you got into college

If you're headed to college, you're probably wondering: When do I find out if I'm in? Here's a timeline for N.C. State, N.C. Central, Duke and UNC.

If you’re headed to college in the fall, January likely means one thing to you: decisions.

You might be finding out if you got into the school of your dreams. Or you might be putting the finishing touches on your Common App and deciding which schools will get it.

So when will you hear back? And when are all those deadlines again?

Here’s a timeline for each school.


Duke is the overachiever of the group. Admitted early decision applicants (students who are required to go to Duke if they’re accepted) found out they’d be Blue Devils in mid-December.

For students applying regular decision, applications were due … yesterday (Jan. 3). Final decisions for those students will be made by March 30, also known as an eternity away.

Want to find out whether you’re in? Check here.

North Carolina State University

Jan. 30 is an important day for future Wolfpack.

If you applied early action to N.C. State, you’ll find out whether you’re in by Sunday, Jan. 30. (Early action is non-binding at N.C. State — students accepted early do not have to attend N.C. State.)

If you’re applying regular action, your application is due by Sunday, Jan. 15. You’ll hear whether you’re in by March 30.

Wanting to check whether you’re in? This might help.

North Carolina Central University

Jan. 15 is also a big day for future Eagles.

NCCU’s third (and last) priority deadline is Sunday, Jan. 15. Students will get a letter in the mail and an email if they’re admitted … or they can check their application status here.

UNC-Chapel Hill

Do we sound like a broken record yet? Mid-January is important in Tar Heel country, too.

Students who applied early decision will find out by the end of January if they’re in. (Early decision is non-binding at UNC — students accepted early do not have to attend UNC.)

Applications are due Jan. 15 for students who are applying regular decision. Those students will hear by the end of March.

Want to check your application status? This will help guide you.

    The NCSU site says Jan 30 for notification. Have you heard differently?

          That was a mistake on our part. We’ve fixed it now. Thanks for pointing it out!

    Exactly six months ago today I sent this to Dr. Wakina via;
    “Hello Dr. Wakina
    I am writing to see if you can help me reconcile with my partner. We both love each other very much but we have had to face many obstacles. Though I am stronger mentally and emotionally and he is and he often runs from problems and ends the relationship then later regrets his decision once he has calmed down.
    I have been to counseling, worked on myself, and I’m very spiritual. I have made mistakes, learned from them and want to be a better woman for him. Both our hearts are broken being apart, we have both tried to see other people but we realize no one else measures up.
    I love him very much. Can you help us to forgive our pasts and reconcile and have a stronger relationship? His pride and ego get in the way, he is very stubborn and worries what people will think if we get back together.
    Please help”
    My utmost effort payed off and we are happier together after the goodwill spell from Dr. Wakina
