Fordham University            The Jesuit University of New York

We greatly value your interest in Fordham University and the time and hard work required to complete your application for admission. The admission review for the freshman class is competitive.

Each application is reviewed very carefully, taking into consideration a variety of important factors, both academic and extracurricular, to ensure that we reach a thoughtful, informed decision.  Please know that your application was reviewed in this thorough and holistic fashion.  We are confident that many of our applicants would succeed at Fordham, and we regret not being able to offer admission to these candidates, given the limitations of both our classrooms and residential facilities.


The following information is important to review as you contemplate your next steps.


§  All decisions are final, regardless of undergraduate college or major. You cannot be considered for another academic program for this admission cycle.

§  Students applying to Dance and Theatre programs were evaluated on both academic and artistic merits.

§  The Office of Undergraduate Admission will consider transfer applications for both the fall and spring semesters.


We understand that you may be disappointed with the decision you have received, but we sincerely hope that you will find a good fit at another college.   

We wish you success as you conclude your senior year and pursue your future academic endeavors.
