Accepted Students

Congratulations on your admission!

To protect its character and standards of scholarship, the University reserves the right, and the applicant concedes to the University the right, to deny admission to any student at any time for any reason the University deems sufficient. Our admission committee holistically reviews each application, and renders a final decision. As such, under most circumstances, admission decisions cannot be appealed. 

Congratulations to all admitted students! Please see the information below on your next steps to successfully matriculate into Howard University.
