Monitoring Your Application
Admit Status - Now that you have submitted your application, changes or corrections to this application must be emailed to the appropriate Graduate College Student Record Manager based on your last name initial and citizenship status. Information about your admission status cannot be disclosed over the telephone or to any third party not specifically designated by you.
Processing Time - Please allow for processing time prior to checking the status of your application. This would be a minimum of two weeks for US citizens/Permanent Residents and four weeks for international students.
Email Communication - The Graduate College will rely on email to communicate with you. Maintain and check the e-mail address indicated on your application form throughout the admission process. Notify the Graduate College of any change in e-mail, phone number, or address.
You should receive e-mail when the following occurs:
• Your application is successfully submitted
• Your Ohio University account is created, with instructions for logging into MyOHIO
• Letters of recommendation are submitted via the on-line LOR system
• Transcripts are processed
• An admission decision is processed by the Graduate College
You can use your MyOHIO account to monitor receipt of official test scores. They will appear under the admission tab.
Please note that the application status box on your MyOHIO account is not an accurate reflection of your application status. Do not rely on this for updated information or as an indication of whether all materials have been received. If you have questions about whether or not materials have been received, please contact the academic program to which you have applied. (add link to program list on GC web)
