Filing deadline: November 1stCommunication: Mid-December The early decision plan is aimed at students who passionately believe that Barnard is their first choice of university. This is a binding decision plan, which means that if you receive an early decision, you are ready to visit Barnard and promise to withdraw all other applications. With all other necessary and optional application files, applicants must submit, with an early decision, an early decision agreement signed by the applicant, his parent/guardian and his advisor. Students applying by early decision may be admitted, deferred or denied. If the authorization is valid, the applicants declare themselves ready to go to Barnard by the early decision. If candidates for the advance decision are deferred, they will be reviewed during our regular decision-making cycle. Applicants will have the opportunity to submit additional documents, such as. B an expanded essay explaining their interest in Barnard and the notes updated in the middle of the year. If applicants deferred by the advance decision are admitted during the ordinary decision, they are no longer bound by the registration agreement. In the event of a refusal, applicants for the advance decision cannot appeal their decision or re-apply for the ordinary decision. However, they are welcome to apply in the future as a transfer student.
