Missing Application Materials
Frequently asked questions about missing application materials
We strongly prefer that you use our online Brown Applicant Portal to check whether items have been received and filed. With many thousands of documents and files, it is very difficult for us to check for individual items. Please do not call the Office of College Admission regarding the status of your application materials; the Applicant Portal will indicate the most up-to-date information.
In the case of paper documents, you should immediately arrange to have a duplicate document sent to the Office of College Admission. It may be that an item was delayed or lost in the mail or even that your name was smudged on a form and we were unable to match the document with your file. If your school and teachers have submitted documents online using the Common Application or Naviance, please log into your Common Application account to verify that documents have been submitted to Brown.
Lastly, please remember to allow ample time around our deadlines for documents to be received and filed in our office.
