Check application status

Log in to your Applicant Center

Log in to your Applicant Center to check the status of your application, update your personal information, accept admission and more.

Check your application status regularly

Once you’re logged in, look for two things:

  • On the left under Admissions, you’ll see a link to Application Status. Click that to view the status of your application.
  • On the right, you’ll see a section called To Do List. If there are items listed there, click “More” for all available details, including any follow-up comments from Graduate and Professional Admissions.

To update your personal information

Log in to your Applicant Center and make the updates on the "Self-Service" page.

Need login credentials?

You'll need to activate your Ohio State username and create a password to access your Applicant Center. Refer to the instructions we emailed to you, or begin at by clicking "Activate Now."


Contact our IT Service Desk at 614-688-4357 or if you have any problem setting up your username and password.

For your security

Ohio State requires two-factor authentication when logging in to most services and applications. If you haven't already done so, you'll need to register for BuckeyePass.
