Getting Started With ApplyWeb

Follow

Before you can submit an application for the first time, you'll need to sign up for an account with ApplyWeb, the application hosting service affiliated with the school. Once you have an ApplyWeb account, you'll be able to log in any time and see your Applicant Portal (sometimes referred to as your User Status Page or Applicant Status Portal), a personalized status page showing any applications you've started (so that you can continue your work on an in-progress application), as well as showing those applications you've already submitted.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create my ApplyWeb account?

  1. Go to https://www.applyweb.com/public/account.
  2. Enter your account information exactly as instructed.
  3. Click the submit button at the bottom of the page.
Note: Be sure to keep a record of your username and password, as you will need it to access applications in progress, or to check your application status.

How do I access a new application?

In most cases, you can access an application directly by going to the school's own website and following the link to submit an application.

How do I access an application I already started?

Once you've begun an application, you can either return to the school's website and follow the submit an application link to continue your work on your application in progress, or you can come directly to the ApplyWeb site and access any in-progress applications from your Applicant Portal.

How do I fill out an application?

Once you have an ApplyWeb account, you can begin filling out a school application. You can either complete the application and submit it in one sitting, or save your work and continue it at a later time. When filling out your application:

  • To save what you have done so far without exiting, click the Save button (this button's availability and text may vary depending on your application).
  • To save and exit, click the Finish Session or Save and Exit button (this button's availability and text may vary depending on your application).
  • To access an application in progress and continue your work on it, either go to your Applicant Portal and select the application, or access the application directly from the school's website.

How do I submit an application?

Check your work carefully. When you are satisfied with it and are ready to send it to the school, click the submit button at the bottom of the last page (this button's text may vary depending on your application). Clicking this submit button saves your answers in their final form and takes you to the payment page where you pay your application fee online (or apply for a fee waiver, if that option is available).

Not all applications have fees. If your application does not have a fee, clicking the submit button on the final page fully submits your application to the system. 

Note: Your application is not fully submitted until you pay your application fee and it has been authorized (see below), or until you have submitted a fee waiver request and it was granted.
For more information on Fees, see our Help Center section, Payment Information

If my application has a fee, how do I pay my application fee?

If your application page has a fee, it will take you to the Payment Page upon submission. On the payment page, you can pay your application fee by debit/credit card. 

Note: Once payment is authorized, your application is final, and you can no longer make changes to it.
For more information on Fees, see our Help Center section, Payment Information

How secure is my payment transaction?

Your debit/credit card information is encrypted during transmission from your browser to the school's server and during payment authorization. None of your debit/credit card information is stored in the school or ApplyWeb's database.

The ApplyWeb system is hosted by CollegeNET, Inc and complies with all data protection regulations under the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") which took effect on May 25, 2018.

I was given a fee waiver for my Application. What are fee waivers?

A fee waiver means that the school will accept an application without payment. Not all applications have fee waivers.

For more information on Fee Waivers, see our Help Center section, Payment Information

What is my Applicant Portal?

You can easily check your Applicant Portal at any time to see your application activity and to learn when the school you applied to has acknowledged receipt of your form. Just log into your ApplyWeb account and select Applicant Portal.

Helpful Hints

You can work on your application any place at any time, at your own pace. 

For example, you can start working on an application at your library's computer facility, save your work, access the application at home on your personal computer, and continue working from there. Wherever you have access to the internet, you have access to the information you have saved.

When you complete more than one application, common information you provided on the first form may be entered automatically in all subsequent ones.

For example, if you have entered your name and address on an application and saved it, that information will be entered automatically on the next application you access (assuming, of course, that the next form also has name and address fields). If you change information on one form, it may also be changed on other unsubmitted forms as well.

If you run into any trouble while applying, click the provided help link at the bottom of each page in the application.
