How to Check Your Application Status

After you submit your undergraduate application to Bucknell University, we will send you a confirmation email acknowledging receipt of your application and provide you with instructions for logging in to your applicant status page, which includes your application status, checklist and other important notifications.

If you do not receive the email within three days after submitting your application, or if you find information that is incorrect, please contact us at 570-577-3000 or

Application Checklist

Your application checklist shows the application materials Bucknell has received and helps you verify when your application is complete and ready for admissions to review.

Submitting Documents

After reviewing your checklist, please arrange to have any missing documents required to complete your application sent to

Note: Because of the volume of documents we receive, it may take up to five business days before received items appear in your checklist. If you think we should have received an item that was sent more than five business days ago, but it does not show up in your checklist, please contact us at 570-577-3000 or
