Admissions Decisions

Please see the appropriate section for information regarding undergraduate and graduate admissions decisions.

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

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.

The $300 reservation fee for US citizens or $500 for international applicants is payable upon acceptance to the university. The university observes the May 1 reservation fee deadline and encourages students to research all schools before placing a reservation fee. Reservation fees received after May 1, 2018 will be accepted on the basis of space availability. Reservation fees received prior to May 1, 2018, 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 May 1, 2018. After May 1, 2018, the reservation fee of $300 for US citizens (or $150 of such fee in the case of applicants to the North Miami Campus), or $500 for international applicants is nonrefundable.

The university may revoke any student’s acceptance or enrollment if any information or documentation provided by the student is false or incomplete, or if the university learns of any past or present misconduct by the student that would affect the student’s ability to represent and uphold the standards of the university.
