In my dashboard, my application status is listed as ‘incomplete’, but I have submitted all of the required materials and they have been marked as ‘received’ in my application. Does this mean the department cannot see my application and materials?

If your application is incomplete despite all materials being marked received, please contact the Graduate School or your department. They will review your file to correct your application status. An ‘incomplete’ application status is an administrative notation (provided all materials have been submitted), and does not prevent your application materials from being electronically delivered to the department for review.

The application status is not updated immediatley upon submission and there is a turn around time for the scores to be attached to the application. Irrespective of when scores were sent to the Graduate School, the application system will still need days for the scores to be attached and matched with the application.  The time to match applicant to score depends on how the applicant to score records match. (For example, there frequent instances when an applicant uses different names or abbreviation of names for the application versus ETS, and then it is more difficult to match the two up.)
