Check Your Application Status  

Log in to check your application status

About 2-3 days after submitting the Common App and the Common App's writing supplement to Purdue, students will receive an email from the Office of Admissions providing login credentials for their Purdue application so that they can track their status.

Note: Required material on your application summary will not appear as received until it is received and processed by the Office of Admissions. During periods of peak application activity (October-February) this may take up to three weeks.

Confirming That Your Application is Complete

To check whether your Purdue application is complete, review the "Requirements" section at the bottom of your Application Summary page to see which required items we have received and which are still outstanding. If the "Received" date is blank for any item, either we have not yet received or not yet processed the item.

During the peak application season (September through January), items may not be processed (and recorded as received on your application summary) for up to three weeks after we have received them. Once processed, the items will reflect the actual received date, not the date they were processed.

Admission Decision Definitions

The descriptions below provide a brief definition of what each admission decision means. Greater detail will be provided in the applicant’s decision letter. For students who apply online, decision letters are viewable via the online application status within 48-72 hours after the decision has been made.
