Graduate School Application Status Check

 Should you have any problems logging in to check the status of your application, please contact The Graduate School at gradschool@valdosta.edu or at 229-333-5694.

 STEP ONE

Visit https://apply.valdosta.edu/apply.  Login using the same credentials you created for your application.  If you forgot your password, click the “Forgot Your Password?” link.  Please do not try to create a new account under a different email!  If you have trouble, contact our office at gradschool@valdosta.edu.

STEP TWO

Click the entry with the semester and program you applied for.  If you have more than one entry in the applications screen, any that have a status of “Submitted” have been submitted.   If your application wasn’t submitted, it will have a status of “In Progress” and you can click that entry to complete it.

STEP THREE

After clicking your application in the list, a pop up will confirm the status of your application and allow you to click “Open Application.”  After clicking that, your current contact info and checklist for the chosen semester will show up.  Any requirements that haven’t been received/uploaded will have a red X icon and “Awaiting” in the status column.  If you can upload a document yourself, you should be able to select it in the “Upload Materials” drop down.   To upload a document, select the type of document you wish to upload, then click the Choose File button and follow the prompts to select the file from your computer.  Click “Upload” after you have chosen the file.  The status should change to “Received” in the checklist. 

If your program requires recommendations, the recommenders you listed on your application will show up in the checklist.  If their response hasn’t been submitted, the Status column will say “Awaiting.” If it has been received, it says “Received” with a green check mark.  You can resend the invitation by clicking “recommendations page” under the checklist, clicking “edit,” then click “Send Reminder.”that link in the Action Column.  You can cancel that recommendation by clicking “edit,” then “Exclude.”  You can add a different recommender by clicking “Add Recommender in the Recommendations page.

STEP FOUR

Once all your items have been received, we will send your application to the department for review and all the items in your checklist will have green check marks under "Status."  Once the decision is returned and we have it processed, we will send a decision letter as soon as possible.  Review time can vary depending on the program.
