Note on Application Deadlines and Document Submissions

At Fordham University, we would like the student application to be as complete as possible by the time of the submission deadline. We do understand that it is not always possible for official scores and supporting documents to arrive with the application. On or before the deadline, only the application itself must be received.Scores and additional documents should be received within two weeks of the deadline and no later than one month prior to the posted date of decision notification.​
We are aware of the Naviance and Common Application delays and will exercise some flexibility regarding the submission of your application given these issues. Please contact the Dean of Undergraduate Admission directly at should you have any questions.​

Fordham is Using one Application Platform– The Common Application

As the summer comes to a close and the new school year begins, we wanted to share some important news. We are pleased to announce that starting with the 2017-2018 application cycle, Fordham University will be using one application platform–the Common Application! We are hoping that this single application option makes applying to Fordham easier for both you and your students. Here are some of the additional advantages we hope to see as a result of this change:

We know that many of you have shared with us that a single application is a strong counselor preference. We assure you that your feedback was critical in helping us make this decision.

So now, when you think of Fordham–remember that there are three full-time undergraduate collegestwo campuses but only one application!

Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions about our application process.
