Your MyOHIO Student Center To Do list shows information about the status of your application. Each of the To Do items is a hyperlink. If you click through it, you will see details about the item. Applicants with To Do items will receive a monthly e-mail reminder about those items.
While your application is pending, you will see a To Do item that indicates your application is in the program review queue. This To Do item remains until the academic program completes its application reviews.
If English is not your native language, you may also see a checklist item that lists the type of admission for which you are eligible based on the current documentation of your English language proficiency.
The application status box on your MyOHIO account will be listed as incomplete until an admission recommendation is received. If the only item on your To Do list is "app status: at academic prgrm," you can contact the academic program to which you applied to confirm whether or not your application is complete and ready for review.
Monitoring Letters of Recommendation
If you used the online recommendation option, you can monitor the status of your recommendations through your application account (follow the instructions under "Manage Your Account"). As application deadlines approach, you are encouraged to monitor this information on a regular basis, and follow up with recommenders as necessary.
The Graduate College is unable to provide any tracking system for letters of recommendation submitted outside the online system.
You can check on the receipt of official test scores by monitoring your MyOHIO account, under the admissions tab. Please note: The Graduate College does not track unofficial test scores. Allow a minimum of three processing days after submitting both your application and test scores for scores to match to your application.
Your MyOHIO Student Center To Do list is updated as application materials are processed. Any missing transcripts will have a corresponding To Do item.
Your application materials need to include the following transcripts:
- A copy of the official transcript from each institution where a bachelor's degree has been or will be granted.
- A copy of the official transcript from any institution attended after completing a bachelor's degree, or from which any graduate coursework was attempted, regardless of whether or not a degree has been or is being completed.
- A copy of an official transcript from any college or university attended within the past four years from which credit was or is currently being completed.
- Note: Transcripts for work completed through a study abroad program are NOT required.
If you listed Ohio University as a current or prior institution, the Graduate College will request a copy of your OHIO transcript on your behalf. However, if you did not list OHIO as a prior institution, you will need to submit a copy of an official transcript.
Please note, degree audit reports or academic records that you can download from a website or student advising center are not accepted in lieu of a copy of an official transcript.
Other To Do Items
The Graduate College application requirements include a completed application, the correct application fee, transcripts as noted above, a current resume, and English proficiency test scores for non-native speakers of English. Academic programs may have additional application requirements. Please be sure you have reviewed the application requirements for the academic program which you will find on the program's webpage.
Additional documents may be included on your My Ohio Student Center To Do list, but your To Do list may not be a comprehensive list of all required materials. Please allow at ten (10) business days after materials and your application have been submitted for processing before contacting the academic program.
Options for Submitting Additional Materials
All materials submitted after your application must include your name and date of birth or Ohio PID number to ensure proper matching to your application.
