Accelerated & Instant Decisions

Home > Accelerated & Instant Decisions

Kean University is pleased to provide applicants the opportunity to complete the entire admissions process in just one day!  Instant Decision Days at Kean offer a “fast track” admissions process, where you submit your application, meet one-on-one with administrators and current students, and receive an admission decision all on the same day. Your personal admissions counselor will also share valuable information about academic programs and student life, and waive the $75 application fee (excluding application via The Common Application). Moreover, you might even be offered a scholarship if deemed eligible!

Please note that STEM and performing arts majors are excluded from receiving an instant decision due to program evaluation.

See below for dates and details. Appointments are required.
