Check Your Status
|Checking your status is the fastest way for you to know what activity is taking place with your application, including your admissions decision. Check to see that if your recommendations, scores, and transcripts have been received.
You can check the status of your application by going to the Self-Service Center and clicking on the Applications tab. You will see a summary button for your application/s. Clicking on an application summary button will show you a list of requirements. Making sure your application is complete before the deadline is your responsibility.
Until your application is complete, it is held in the Graduate Admissions Office and not fully reviewed by the faculty in the department/program you applied to. It is up to you to follow-up with your college Registrar's Office for transcripts, the people who are writing your letters of recommendation, etc., to make sure materials are submitted in a timely manner.
Individual committees within your program make admissions recommendations, and this process may take up to some time. We understand that you want your decisions as soon as possible, especially if you are considering offers from other schools. If you know your application is complete and you have not received a fall decision by summer, you should contact the Graduate Admissions Office.
The department will make a detailed review and an initial recommendation to admit. However, only a written notice from the Dean of the Graduate School constitutes an offer of admission, not correspondence with the department or with an individual faculty member. Applicants who are not offered admission will also be notified by the Dean as decisions are made.
