We write to inform you today that the Class of 2016 and the transfer class entering fall 2012 are now closed. Those of you who remained on our waitlist until the end of the process were recently sent an email with this information in an effort to let you know as soon as possible.

Regardless of whether or not you were admitted to Vanderbilt, we appreciate the patience you showed during the entire application process. We remain humbled by the competitiveness of this year’s first-year and transfer pools, and the myriad accomplishments we discovered through your applications, phone calls, emails, campus visits and so forth. And we’re encouraged in the knowledge that each of you will fulfill the promise of your potential wherever you go from here.

Thanks again for your interest in Vanderbilt University. We wish you much success in your college career whether August sees you at Vanderbilt or at one of the many other esteemed institutions around the world.

    If a wait-listed transfer applicant has heard nothing one way or the others, does that mean he/she was not accepted?

    Hi Emma, the waitlist closing email was sent last week to all email addresses we have on file for waitlist active students. At this point, no one else will be offered admission to the Class of 2016 or transfer class entering fall 2012.

    I wanted to know did you start on sending decisions to all transfer applicants this year?

    Yes, we started sending transfer decisions on 4/19 and will continue to mail them weekly on a rolling basis until the transfer class is filled.

    Hi Eiriny, unfortunately we can’t predict a date that the transfer class will close.
