Check Your Application Status

Using the SOLAR System

Within two weeks of submitting your application for admission to Stony Brook University, we will send you your Stony Brook ID number and a temporary password, which you will need when logging into Stony Brook's secure SOLAR System to check your application status. You will be prompted to change your password when logging into SOLAR for the first time.

When you log in, you will be able to view whether or not your application is complete and your current application status. Decisions displayed on SOLAR reflect general admission to the University, not to a specific major or honors program. Information regarding admission to majors will be included in your letter of admission. Notification of admission to honors programs do not appear in SOLAR and are typically sent in mid-March for Fall freshman applicants.

To Do List

Your To Do List, located on the bottom left of your SOLAR homepage, will display items which are currently needed by the Admissions Committee. Items already received will not appear on the To Do List. Documents sent within the past two weeks will not appear as received. Once items are received, they will disappear from your To Do List. Please be patient and allow several weeks for processing before contacting the Admissions Office to check on the status of an item already sent.
