The Status part of myStatus Page Down

Quick update for everyone. The UGA myStatus page will be down until Tuesday due to some issues with the importing of data from the recent applications. The applications are downloading into our system, but there are at times some minor glitches that we want to iron out before the information is displayed on myStatus. We thought it would be prudent to make the corrections and then open up myStatus, rather than have someone panic if some data was incorrect concerning an applicant's information.

This does not impact student who is applying to UGA, as you can log in to either start an application or continue with a current application with no problems. We have only taken down the Check your status part of the myStatus page.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we want to make sure everything is working correctly before opening it back up!

  1. I was planning on filling out my application this weekend. Should I wait until after Tuesday, or is it fine to go ahead and submit it this weekend?

  2. Anon: I have rephrased the post, and so it now reads that the Check your Status part of the site is down, but there is no problem with anyone either starting an application or continuing with a current application on the site. Go ahead and fill out the application, as there should be no problem. It is just the check status part that we are working on.

  3. My status just updated this morning saying I was accepted. So the importing of data has nothing to do with decisions just posted today?

  4. Anon: The importing of application data is about the new applications and the actual application information (name, address, etc.). It has nothing to do with a decision. So any decision you saw was independent of this issue I am talking about.

  5. Hello,
    In the application, for the self-reported GPA, do joint enrollment credits count as AP/IB credits? Thank you!

  6. Anon: Just to clarify, the self-reported academic information is about specific course grades, not GPA. As for joint or dual enrollment courses, they should not be put within the AP/IB fields, as they are not AP or IB courses. We will look at joint/dual enrollment coursework when reviewing academic rigor, though.

  7. My transcript has some semester grades and some block grades. If i have, say, 1 AP Lang class split into two semesters worth .5 credit and earned an A in both semesters.. do i enter that into the grades section as 1 A or 2?

  8. lyss: If you have a mixture of semester and block grades, then you would want to convert all block grades to semester (similar to my post of nickels and dimes, where a dime is the equivalent to two nickels). So your AP Lang class would be 2 A's (since it is two semester grades), and any block grade (a full year credit grade) would be entered in as two semester grades, so a B grade in a block Algebra II class would be 2 B's. This is also displayed on the grade report FAQ.
