Checking the status of your application
After you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation letter in the mail. This letter will include the two codes you need to set up your MyUW account through which you can check the status of your application.
Once you have your system key and private access code (PAC), follow these steps to create your account:
- Create your UW NetID. Your UW NetID is not the same as the login you used for your online application.
- When prompted, enter the system key and private access code (PAC) provided in your letter.
- With your UW NetID created, you can now log in to MyUW. From there you can track the status of your application. If you are admitted, MyUW will become an important resource for you as student.
