After you apply: What's Next?
1. You will receive a confirmation email. This email will let you know that your application was submitted successfully. This email will also direct you back to the admissions portal to view the supplemental items that are required to complete your application.
2. Review and submit your Supplemental Items. After submitting your online application, log back into your admissions portal account (https://apply.winthrop.edu/Graduateschool) with the same username and password that you used to do the application. Once logged in, you should be on the My Account page. Scroll down to the Application section, and click “Submit Supplemental Items.” On the next page you will see a list of Supplemental Items that are required before your application can be reviewed for an admissions decision. Official documents like transcripts and test scores must be sent to our office directly from the issuing institution. You will be able to upload other items like essays, resumes, writing samples, and residency forms in PDF or Word format. Your supplemental item list will depend upon which program you applied to. You can log back in anytime to see which items have been received and what’s still missing. We update records at least once a day. If you notice any discrepancies please email us or call 803/323-2204.
3. Your Application is Reviewed. Once ALL supplemental items are received, then your file will be reviewed for an admissions decision. Although admission documents are submitted to the Graduate School, the credentials are reviewed by the individual college, where the admission decision is made. The Graduate School does not provide conditional admission to any prospective graduate student. All admission requirements must be fulfilled before an application can be reviewed for an admission decision.
4. Admissions Decision is Made. As soon as a decision is made the Graduate School will notify you of the admissions decision. If admitted to the Graduate School, please review the New Student Checklist so you can get everything taken care of before classes begin.
