Early Decision I: Nov. 15
Early Decision II & Regular Decision: Jan. 15
Bucknell's application fee is $40. This nonrefundable fee is paid electronically through the Common Application or Coalition Application website.
We don't want this fee to be an impediment to your applying for admission. If you feel that your financial circumstances qualify you for an application fee waiver, please indicate this when you apply through the Common Application or Coalition Application.
Deadline Extensions Available
Our thoughts are with people affected by recent disasters, including the wildfires in California and Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. We're also thinking of students in Chicago affected by the teachers strike.
To help remove some concerns for students in these areas, Bucknell will offer an application deadline extension, as well as an application fee waiver, upon request. Please email email@example.com for assistance.
New students are required to make a nonrefundable deposit of $500 after they have been admitted to Bucknell. This deposit is credited to the student's first-semester billing.
