After submitting an application to Yale, please watch for a confirmation email regarding the Yale Admissions Status Portal. This email will be sent to you within three days of submitting your application. The email will include a temporary PIN and instructions for establishing your Yale Admissions Status Portal account.
You will use your Yale Admissions Status Portal to view the following during the admissions process:
- Your Application Checklist
- Your Admissions Decision
- For Admitted Students: The Admitted Student Website
The Status Portal also includes forms that allow you to submit an application update, to request a change in your contact information (email, phone number, address), or to request that your application be withdrawn.
If you do not receive a confirmation email within three days of submitting your application to Yale, be sure to check your ‘junk mail’ folder. Some email services mistakenly filter Yale admissions messages as junk. To prevent this, add ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ to your address book or contact list. Finally, please ensure that you have clicked ‘Submit’ on the Common Application or Coalition Application site when submitting your application. Some students overlook this necessary final step after completing their application online.
