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.
The Graduate Admissions staff will inform you when your application is received and which materials, if any, are still needed. They will also notify you when your completed application is forwarded for faculty review. Until you are informed that your application is complete, it isn't. Making sure it is complete before the deadline is your responsibility.
If you want to check your application file status (see what items are missing), you must login to Gallaudet's PeopleSoft system. For detailed Self Service Checklist Instructions for Graduate Applicants, please open Self Service Checklists Instructions for Graduate Applicants.pdf
When your application is received, the Graduate Admissions Office will send you an email listing the materials which are still needed (if any). Each time we receive your application's supplemental materials, you will receive an updated checklist email from us.
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.
