Application Status

Helpful tipsQ. How do I find out whether all of my application materials have been received?

A. When your application is received, the Graduate Admissions Office will send you an email listing the materials which are still needed (if any).

When your application is COMPLETE,  you will receive an email from the Graduate Admissions Office letting you know that it is complete and has been forwarded to the department. If you DO NOT receive that email, your application is NOT complete.

Until your application is complete, it is held in the Graduate Admissions Office and is not seen 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.


Q. How do I find out whether an admission decision has been made yet?

A. After Graduate Admissions has informed you that your application is complete and has been forwarded to the program's faculty for review, please contact the staff in the program to which you have applied. They can give you information about when the program's Admissions Committee will be meeting next and when you should be receiving notification about your application.

Please note Calendarthat it takes approximately 4 - 6 weeks for the programs to review all of the applications that they receive. So depending upon the deadline and the amount of applications received, we will not get back to you as quickly, as we're sure, you would prefer.
