What if one (or more) of my documents is received later than the submission deadline?

Once you have submitted your application, we can begin processing your application.  Should any of your documents arrive later, they will be matched with your application, but may delay application review.  Please continue to check the status of your application via your 'webCentral' account to identify which documents, if any, might be missing from your application.  *Please note that the graduate admissions office will need some time, usually 7-10 business days, to match received documents to applications.

I submitted my online application and my status is showing as incomplete, but I do not notice anything missing.

After you submit your application and required documents, the University will process your application and notify GSPP.  GSPP will then manage the rest of your application and contact you as necessary.  You will be able to check “webCentral” for your application status updates.

How can I check the status of my application?

Due to significant concerns about applicant privacy, GSPP does not provide ANY application receipt or status information over the phone or in response to email inquiries. GSPP contacts invited applicants for the required in-person interview by phone/email as necessary.

After submitting your online application, you will be sent an email instructing you to log onto your ‘webCentral’ account for application status updates.  NOTE: Please be advised that the online application process and processing applications does take some time.  All application documents received will be matched to your application within 3-5 business days, which you can track on your ‘webCentral’ page.  If you have questions about logging into your ‘webCentral’ account, please call 303-871-2831.
