Here is a list of the status messages you may see in your account, what they mean, and if any action is required by you. If you have any questions about your application status message contact the Office of Admissions.

Understanding the MyCUBoulder Checklist

Once we have processed your application and your status no longer reads "Thank you for submitting your application," you may have access to a checklist to see what credentials we have and have not received, as well as information on what you need to do next, if anything. To get to your checklist, log in to your MyCUBoulder account and click on the 'Apply' tab. On the ‘Apply’ page, click the ‘Check your status’ button in the upper right corner, and then the link that says 'View your Checklist."

Keep Your Email and Mailing Address Current

Throughout the admission process we will send e-mail and printed information regarding admission, registration, and orientation, as well as other information to the email and mailing address you included on your application. If either your email or mailing address changes after you have submitted your application, you should update them immediately in your MyCUBoulder account.
