Graduate Application Status

Monitor your status online for current updates.

One of the many benefits to applying online is the ability to log in at anytime to check for updates on your application. Please allow five business days from initial submission before starting to monitor. 

We recommend any applicant choosing to monitor their status through the online portal be familiar with the instructions and tips below. 

  • Supplemental Materials Processing Timeline

    Our normal processing time is 3-5 business days (Monday-Friday) before your application summary will reflect an updated document in the portal for most document types. This timeline may be affected during times of high volume.

    Note that different document types have different processing procedures and can therefore update at different times. Please keep this in mind as you monitor your status. 

  • Decision Review Timeline

    Applications are not sent for decision review until all required supplemental materials are received/processed and the UM-Dearborn Transcript Review is complete (when applicable). 

    When applying to a program with rolling admission, complete files are generally reviewed within 2-3 weeks.

    When applying to a program with a hard deadline, all complete applications are reviewed at once and a decision will not come until after the review committee has met.

Important Tips for Monitoring Your Status

  • Questions about how to submit outstanding items? Review the How to Apply instructions.
  • Additional items may appear on your checklist as needed.
  • International transcripts will require an additional internal evaluation. This evaluation generally occurs once all required materials have been submitted and must be completed before the admissions review committee can make an admissions decision. If further items are required to complete this evaluation, you will be contacted directly. Most evaluations are generally completed in 4-6 weeks of being added to the queue. Timing is dependent on when your file was ready for the review, how familiar your evaluator is with your institution, if additional research or verification is required to complete the review, and the overall volume of transcripts ready for the review. All of the following must be received in order to conduct the review:
    • Submitted application
    • Official or institution-attested academic records required by country
    • English language proficiency met per university guidelines 

Further details regarding this review may be found under “UM-Dearborn Transcript Review” in the How to Apply instructions
