Check Your Application Notifications and Status


As you progress through the application process, you'll receive important notifications and critical alerts. Applicants are responsible for monitoring these notifications and following up on any required actions. To view your notifications, click View My Notifications on the left side of the application dashboard. 

Application Statuses

Applicants are responsible for monitoring the status of an application. Notifications are not sent for any missing items. To help you keep track of your application and all materials, click Check Status at the top of the application dashboard.

Keep in mind that it takes 7-10 business days from the date of receipt to post transcripts and official test scores to your application. Evaluations are immediately updated once received from your evaluator.

Your application status may be:

In Progress

Your application has not yet been submitted or you haven’t paid the application fee.


Your application has been submitted, but you are missing required documents.


This is your application's final status. Note that electronic evaluations are immediately updated in the application once received from your evaluator. Materials that are sent directly to the BU School of Social Work office may not be reflected in the application dashboard. If you have any questions about the status of your application or materials, contact a BU School of Social Work admissions officer at  

Evaluation Statuses

If you submit evaluation requests, your evaluation's status may be:


This status indicates that the request was sent to the evaluator, but they have not accepted or declined it. They must accept your request before they can submit their evaluation.


This status indicates that the evaluator accepted your request but has not yet submitted their evaluation. 


This status indicates that the evaluator completed and submitted their evaluation and it was sent to your program(s).
