Check Your Application Status

It is important that you check the status of your application regularly.  To help you with this, the Information Technology (IT) office provides you with a university computing account, which gives you the ability to check the status of your application online, verify personal information, and identify any missing credentials.

Approximately 5-7 days after we receive your application fee payment, IT sends an email with login credentials to the email address provided on your application.  The email from IT includes your NetID and a temporary password with instructions on how to activate your account.  Once you activate your account you can check the status of your application by logging in to SPIRE,

On the right side of the SPIRE Graduate Applicant Center, under the section entitled "Grad Student Resources", follow the Application Status Check link.
