Early Decision students who commit to Daemen by making a tuition deposit by Friday, December 15, 2023, will have their tuition rate GUARANTEED for all four of their undergraduate years at Daemen. This means that if Daemen increases tuition during that time, your financial aid and scholarship will increase, keeping your tuition the same amount.

Daemen will still accept applications as part of our non-binding Rolling Admissions process. However, for the Physician Assistant and Nursing-ECC programs, there is a priority deadline for applications which is November 17th, 2023.

Is Early Decision right for you? Daemen Tuition Guarantee

  • Early Decision is a binding application process that allows students to apply early, receive an admissions decision by Thanksgiving, and make their university decision by December 15th, 2023. 
  • Once you commit to paying your tuition deposit, you are indicating that you are stopping your university search process and attending Daemen.  
  • Early Decision, Priority Deadline, and Rolling Admission applicants are treated equally in the awarding of scholarships and financial aid.
  • A student who applies for Early Decision can request to be moved to the Rolling Admission plan. If you make this change during the application process, you will be reconsidered for admission with Regular Decision applicants. 
  • Please note that some programs have seat capacities and may fill with Early and Rolling Admission applicants. These programs include: physician assistant, physical therapy, nursing, animation, and pre-veterinary 3+4 with Lincoln Memorial University.
