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 or mailed documents. This would be a minimum of two weeks for US Citizens/Permanent Residents and four weeks for International students. If you wish to monitor the arrival of mailed documents, we recommend you utilize the tracking services of the company through which documents were sent.

All mailed documents should be sent to:

Graduate College
1 Ohio University
220 Research & Technology Center
Athens, OH 45701 USA

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.

The MyOHIO Application Status Box is not an accurate reflection of your application status. Do not rely on this for updated information or as an indication that 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.
