Application Tracker

Welcome to Application Tracker! You can use this tool to determine which application materials have been received, and whether a decision has been made on your application.

Admission applications and supporting materials, whether they are submitted electronically or through the mail, generally appear on Application Tracker within 10 days. (Please note that international student documents may take slightly longer.) Each document is individually reviewed and manually connected to your application file, so this process does take some time to complete. You will receive an email from the Office of Admissions when your student ID has been created and Application Tracker is available.

Freshman Admission Decision Timing

By the end of February, students who submit a complete application by the December 15 priority deadline will receive one of the following decisions.

  • Admit - The student has been admitted to the University of Minnesota.
  • Waitlist - The student's application has been placed on a waitlist. Although we have determined that the applicant is academically prepared to succeed at the University of Minnesota, we must make certain that we do not exceed the number of spaces available in each of the freshman-admitting colleges. Waitlisted applicants will receive an update on the status of their applications by April 15. If we determine that spaces remain available, the overall strongest applicants will be admitted from the waitlist.
  • Deny - We are not able to offer freshman admission. Students who are denied admission are encouraged to apply for transfer admission for a future semester. Transfer admission is also competitive so it is important that students achieve a strong academic record at another college or university.

Application Checklists

We look at several pieces of information to make an admission decision. Be sure to use these application checklists to ensure your application is complete by the deadline!

Application Deadlines

Be sure to meet these important deadlines! Applications received or completed after the priority deadline will be reviewed on a space-available basis.
