MyApplicant Portal

MyApplicant Portal allows you to track the receipt of your Common Application and Penn Writing Supplement.

  • You will receive two emails from us in 4 to 5 days after you submit your application. One includes the username and the other your password to grant access to the MyApplicant Portal.

Please allow time for application documents to be processed.  Penn Admissions will contact you directly if a required document is missing.

Helpful Tips:

  • To be considered for admission, an applicant must submit both the Common Application and Penn Writing Supplement.
  • Do not wait to submit your Common Application.  If you have difficulty submitting your application on the first attempt, please continue to try or contact the Applicant Help Center.
  • The irregular formatting of the essays will in no way affect the careful review of your application.
  • Questions after the submission of the Common Application, including access to the MyApplicant Portal should be directed to eapps@admissions.upenn.edu or phone: 215-898-7507.
