Checking Your Application Status

To check the progress of your SPU application, log in to SPU’s Banner Information System.

You will be directed to a login screen and will be prompted to enter your SPU username and password. To obtain your SPU Username and password, visit

How to check your application status:

  1. Once in Banner, choose "Application Menu"
  2. You'll be able to view your application checklist. Here you will see:
    • All items that have been received and processed*
    • Any required items that have not been received or processed yet
  3. When your application is reviewed, the "Application Menu" tab will no longer appear in Banner. This indicates that you should expect to receive an application decision soon.

*If you've submitted an item that isn't listed, it is likely still being processed. Please note that it can take 2 - 4 weeks for application materials to be received and processed by our office.
