Check Application Status

Accessing your Application

If you want to check the status of your undergraduate application to WMU, or are curious if materials you sent to the Office of Admissions have been received, you can access this information by visiting the Gold Gateway

First-year/freshman applicants

  • If you applied through the Common App, or another application, you will need to create a Gold Gateway account with the same email you used on this application. You will then be able to log in to the Gold Gateway and monitor the receipt of your materials. Please note that it may take two to three business days for your application to show up in the Gold Gateway. 

Transfer students and all other applicant types

  • If you applied through the WMU Gold Gateway, you can log in with your existing username and password to view whether or not your materials have been received by WMU. 

If you need assistance, contact the Office of Admissions at (269) 387-2000.
