Check Your Status

Logging back into your application portal is the fastest way for you to know what activity is taking place with your application, including your admissions decision. Check to see if your recommendations, scores, and transcripts have been received. You can also accept or decline your offer of admission online.

We update records as we receive and process new information. You can log in as often as you want to check your status.

Application Processing

In some cases, such as holidays and weekends, and during peak graduate admissions season, it may take us longer to process your official materials. Continue to check your application portal. Please wait at least two weeks after you have submitted your application before contacting us to check if official credentials were received.

Letters of Recommendation

Your letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically. If the application portal indicates that your recommendations have not been received, you can re-send the emails to your recommenders by clicking on the Resend Form button located in the Recommendations section of the application.

If your recommender is unable to submit your letter electronically, if you need to obtain an additional recommendation, or if you need to change a recommender, you can download a recommendation form to give or send to that person.

Admissions Decisions

Individual committees within your program make admissions decisions, and this process may take up to several months. 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 late spring, you should contact your program directly.

If you have not been accepted

We are sorry to hear that the admissions committee decided not to offer you admission at this time. All of our graduate programs are highly competitive on both a domestic and international level. While you may not have been offered admission to the current semester, you can always re-apply for the following semester or consider nondegree study. If you would like to know the specific reason(s) why your application was not accepted, you should contact the program directly.
