When checking your status, you may find the following admissions status possibilities:
- Accepted: official decision in which admission is approved/offered
- Deferred: applicant is “on hold” during further review of applications
- Denied: official decision in which admission is not approved
- Waitlisted: applicant will be admissible if/when an open space becomes available
An applicant may also receive a status of withdrawn for scores if individual test score sections do not meet the Board of Regents test score mandates; withdrawn applicants may submit new test scores and contact Undergraduate admissions to request an official re-evaluation of their admission file.
