Early Action Admission (First-Year Applicants for Fall Semester)

Johnson & Wales University offers Early Action Admission, a non-binding application program for students who view JWU as one of their top choice schools. The application deadline for Early Action is November 1 and release dates of decisions are November 15.

Rolling Admissions

The Rolling Admissions policy of the university makes it possible to notify students of the admissions decision, their acceptance or any additional conditions necessary for admission soon after all of their academic records have been received and reviewed.

Reservation Fee

The $300 reservation fee for U.S. citizens or $500 for international applicants is payable upon acceptance to the university and is credited towards the student's tuition. The university observes the June 1 reservation fee deadline and encourages students to research all schools prior to placing a reservation fee. Reservation fees received after June 1 will be accepted on the basis of space availability. Reservation fees received prior to June 1 are refundable. The student's account must be cleared by Student Financial Services by the July deadline to receive a room assignment. To best ensure consideration for on-campus housing, it is important to meet all deadlines throughout the enrollment process.

Requests for refunds of the reservation fee will be granted upon written request to University Admissions prior to June 1. After June 1, the reservation fee of $300 for U.S. citizens (or $150 in the case of applicants to the North Miami Campus), or $500 for international applicants (or $250 for North Miami Campus applicants) is nonrefundable.
