Mark David Chapman is to be interviewed by the parole board at Attica Correctional Facility and could be released from prison after almost 30 years behind bars, according to The AP.
This will be Chapman's sixth try for freedom, having be declined every two years since he first became eligible for parole in 2000.
He is currently serving a sentence of 20 years to life in prison for shooting Lennon four times outside the former Beatle's New York City apartment building in 1980.
It was previously reported that Chapman's latest parole inquiry had been delayed in August to allow more complete records on the man to be compiled.
Lennon's widow Yoko Ono continues to oppose Chapman's release.
