After You Apply

You’ve applied and submitted your application. Now what?

What's next?

You can check your status online at any time. This will show you a checklist of all your items and if they’re all correct and complete.

Departmental review

The time that it takes for an application to go through the review process varies.

After we complete our review of your application, we communicate the recommendations and denials to Admissions and they update the official record. We do this throughout the application cycle.

Graduate college review

In some specific cases, applications we recommend for admission may need to also be reviewed by the Graduate College. The Graduate College may decide to uphold our recommendation or deny the application.

After a decision has been made

Once a final decision is entered by the Office of Admissions, the application portal will be updated to note the decision and an official decision letter will be mailed out.
