Application Status

After submitting your application through FACTS.org, you can follow the status of your application online. The online system will allow you to view what documentation has been received, as well as any outstanding items required for FAU to make an admissions decision.

Students new to FAU use OWLS (Online Web Link Services) to check the status of their application.

Existing/former FAU students use MyFAU. Once you are logged in, click on FAU Self-Service and open the Student Services tab to review your application.

Note: Due to the high volume of applications, it may take up to two weeks for your accurate application status to be reflected online.


What is a Z number?

A Z number is a student ID used for identification purposes within the FAU system. Your Z number is unique to you and protects your privacy. Use a capital letter 'Z' when you are entering your Z number (for example: Z12345678). Please remember your Z number and keep it confidential.

How do I find my Z number?

To find the Z number assigned to you, click here. If you are unable to obtain your Z number, please contact the Graduate College one business day after you have submitted your application.

I don't know my PIN, or the PIN I tried did not work. Now what do I do?

Your initial PIN is set to your date of birth (format: MMDDYY). For example, if your birth date is June 1, 1970, enter your birth date as 060170. If you are still having trouble with your PIN, please contact the Graduate College to have your PIN reset to your birth date (MMDDYY).

Is there any other way to check my application status?
