Deerfield accepts students for September enrollment only. Our priority application deadline for September 2021 enrollment is January 15, 2021.

We will make every effort to give full consideration to completed applications (including testing) received after January 15, however we cannot guarantee a March 10 notification.

Candidates who do not receive a March 10 notification are considered late candidates, and their chances for admission are limited by the number of spaces available after April 10. Late candidates should file their applications as soon as possible and call the Admission office to make an appointment to visit campus after April 15 for a tour and interview. The Admission Committee meets periodically throughout the spring to make decisions on this group of candidates.
