Notification of Decision | Duke Kunshan University

Notification of Decision

Before a student can begin graduate work at Duke Kunshan University, she or he must be formally admitted by the Dean of the Duke University Graduate School and the Executive Vice Chancellor of Duke Kunshan University. Decisions for Fall admission are generally made within four (4) weeks of receiving an application complete with all required materials.  All applicants are notified of admission decisions via email. The decision notification email will provide instructions for accessing the online decision letter. If you are offered admission, your online letter of admission will include two enrollment options. By clicking the appropriate option (“Accept” or “Decline”), you will be notifying Duke Kunshan University of your enrollment decision. The process of admission is not complete until you have notified Duke Kunshan University of your decision, whether or not you have contacted your department. In general, and unless otherwise indicated, we expect to hear back from you by April 15, or within 15 days of your receipt of the admission letter, whichever is later. If we do not hear back from you within the appropriate timeframe, we will assume that you have declined the offer of admission, and your application record will be withdrawn.

Every candidate who completes an application will receive, at the earliest possible time, notification of the decision reached on the application. Questions about the timetable for decisions or the reasoning behind those decisions should be addressed directly to the department to which you applied.


All students are automatically considered for merit scholarships based on their Graduate School application – no additional application is required.  In addition, accepted students may apply for scholarships and awards based on financial need, country of origin, and field of study.  For details on how to apply for these scholarships and awards, please contact the Global Health or the Medical Physics program directly.
