Graduate applications sometimes remain in "Review" status for many weeks.  Graduate programs usually review files at scheduled internvals, not on a daily basis.  For information regarding a particular program’s decision timeline, please contact that Graduate Program

Uploading Application Documents

Application documents can be uploaded anytime during the application process.  While completing the application you can use the “Upload Documents” section.  After submission of the application you can use the “Upload Additional Documents” section on the Application Summary page.  Please be aware that uploaded documents are moved from the application to the university database once each business day.  During this progress uploaded documents may not be visible in this area of the page.  Please do not upload the documents again if it has been less than two business days since the document was originally uploaded.  The documents will appear in the “Documents Received” area once the process is complete.

Required documents vary for each individual graduate program, as a program may require specific forms, resumes, writing samples, or more. For information regarding a particular program’s requirements, please contact that Graduate Program

You can find assistance on the Frequently Asked Questions page if you have additional questions or need help with the upload system. 

Providing Letters of Reference

Most programs require letters of reference. It is the applicant’s responsibility to assure the required letters are submitted before deadline dates. Non-engineering applicants will be sent an email with a link to the Graduate School’s reference management tool. This tool allows you to control  who is asked for a reference, determine which references have arrived, and modify your list of reference requests. Technical support for the electronic reference letter system is available on our web site.  

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING: Engineering applicants must submit letters of reference through the supplemental engineering application.  Please contact your graduate program for further instructions.

If your email or mailing address has changed since you submitted in your application, or you wish to change your term, please consult our Applications Forms page for instructions on how to update your application.
