Application Timeline

Fall Freshman Applicants:

  • Fall Priority Deadline - November 1
  • Spring Priority  Deadline - February 1
  • Regular Deadline - May 1*

Applications received after the posted deadlines will be evaluated if space is available.

Applications that become complete after February 1 will be reviewed monthly, and decisions will be released on a rolling basis.  This may take up to three weeks from the time all of your required materials have been received.  Check your Winthrop Admissions Portal to see if any required materials are outstanding.

* Applications received after this deadline will be evaluated if space is available.

As always, contact your personal admissions counselor if you need additional information.

Non-Freshman Applicants:

  • Spring 2020 Admissions - December 1
  • Fall 2020 Admissions - July 1

Decisions for non-freshman applicants (transfer, second undergraduate, non-degree, dual-enrollment, or readmit) will be released on a rolling basis after a complete review of your application file. This can take up to three weeks from the time all of your required materials have been received.  Check your Winthrop Admissions Portal to see if any required materials are outstanding.

Decisions will be mailed to your home address and can be viewed in your Winthrop Admissions Portal.
