Applicant Status Portal

Tracking Your Application

The Applicant Status Portal is your online hub for viewing and submitting information about your application to Harvard College. Here, you can:

  • Update your email address, mailing address and other contact information
  • View your personalized application checklist
  • Confirm the official testing information we have received
  • Upload additional documents that will be sent directly to your admissions officer

If you have lost your password you can always request a new one here.

The application checklist is continuously updated, and lists the status of all the required components of your application. Please refer to that list for the most recent items received by our office.

Application Acknowledgement Email

Once we receive your application, we will send you an email acknowledgement with instructions for accessing your status portal. You will receive this email within one to two days of submitting your application. If you did not receive this message please check your spam folder, or you can also contact us for a new copy. We recommend that you retain this email for your records.

Your Admissions Decision

Your admissions decision will be available on the applicant status portal. You will receive an email notification when your decision is ready to be viewed.
