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.

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.

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.
