Checking Your Application Status

First, you will need to check the Common Application to see whether you have successfully submitted your application. Within 3-5 days of successful submission, you will receive an email with your U-M ID and login credentials for Enrollment Connect, an online portal for all your application needs: track your checklist and application status, receive important messages from our office, view your application decision, and more.

We take your application every bit as seriously as you do. To verify your application information, go to Enrollment Connect and choose the Application menu. Then, select the button that reads Verify Application Answers, which will show what you have on file with us.

We appreciate your patience while we process your documents. Please allow three days from the date you submitted your application materials for them to be marked as “Received” on Enrollment Connect.

Exception: Processing your materials may take longer during certain times of the year. Please use the table below to guide when you would need to follow up on resubmitting your documents during these peak times. For example, if you submit your materials on Nov. 1, Enrollment Connect may still show them as "Awaiting" through Nov. 10. If the items still show an "Awaiting" status on Nov. 11, you should request to have them resubmitted as soon as possible.

Documents to be resubmitted can be sent electronically through a document vendor (such as Naviance/SCOIR/Parchment), through the Common Application, or via email to [email protected]. If you are requesting to have the documents sent via email, please make sure to include your full name, U-M ID, and date of birth in your message.

Note: Application materials submitted after our Feb. 1 deadline will be considered on a space-available basis.

Please contact us if you see anything that needs attention or should be corrected. If all of the information is correct, you don’t need to respond.

Receiving Your Financial Aid Notice

It can take several weeks to process a financial aid application, so we encourage you to complete and submit yours early. After your application materials have been processed and reviewed, you will receive an email from the Office of Financial Aid letting you know that your financial aid notice is available on Wolverine Access.
