We have made some updates to assist you and your students with the application process:
Admission Process Updates
The short response on the Common Application that was required is now optional. We now have three optional short responses where students can share more about themselves: a unique Fordham question, a COVID-19 impact statement, and additional information.
Early Action/Early Decision applicants will have through November 20 to change their testing status and submit their self-reported scores via forms in their applicant portals. Review our test-optional policy.
We can accept school documents from counselors for Early Action/Early Decision applicants through November 16.
Fordham is test optional for the Fall 2021 application cycle. For more information about our new test optional policy, please go here.
We hope you were able to review our options for meeting you and your students this fall. If you are looking to schedule a virtual visit and need to contact us, you can find your admission counselor here.
I encourage all juniors (and seniors) to join us for live virtual campus tours on November 14. At the event, take a tour with current students and hear our University President speak about what makes Fordham an unique institution.
The Early Action, Early Decision, Priority Performance Application Deadline has been extended to November 9th.
November 1st is the deadline date for EA, ED and Priority Performance applications. For more information, visit our “Apply” page.
Fordham’s Open House event for Seniors is October 1718. You and your student your students are invited to attend. Information about the events and registration links can be found here. Along with Open House, there are an array of other virtual visit options.
If you and your families have been impacted by the recent natural disasters, please know you are in our thoughts. Should you need assistance with the college application process, or require flexibility regarding submission of applications and/or documents or a fee waiver, please do not hesitate to contact your admission counselor.
Thank you for all that you do to support students and families!
