Congratulations! You are about to start the higher education journey and a new phase of life at North-West University. You sent the application for admission and want to check the status.
The majority of the students are worried about their admissions and further instructions from the university. For these purposes, the institute offers multiple ways to check the progress of the application.
When I planned to join the NWU, knowing the basic information about my applications was a bit tricky. But after visiting the office, consulting with seniors, and asking the higher authorities, I came up with multiple easy to follow ways you can use at home for checking the NWU application status.
Similar to this, you can check status of various other universities from following links
Follow my lead and I will ease your mind; providing you with two simple ways to check NWU application status. Here we go!
Check The NWU Application Status Online
When you apply for admission to North-West University for higher education, they offer you to see the application progress which we call the application status.
In the beginning, I was so confused about the status of my application because the new university environment triggered a sense of anxiety. But later I learned how I could solve my problem to pacify myself by contacting the admission office of the institute.
Checking the NWU status is not as simple as it seems, you should follow a few instructions and steps to accomplish the task. Anyhow, I have explained all the procedures in simple steps. Follow them one by one and you will be successful in this goal. Look below!
Login to Website
The first method I used for checking the NWU status was the official website. I came to know about it when I asked my seniors to help me get admission. She advised me to submit an application for admission and check my status through the official website of North-West University. Anyhow, it is the most secure and easiest method.
Open the following Link
For Mobile Users
If you are trying to check the status on your cell phone, you should go to the website. Click on the three dots button on the right above side. As you press it, a drop-down list will appear and you will see the “Desktop Size” option. Tap on that option and the entire page will fit on the screen.
Using University Number & PIN to Login
As you click on the link and adjust the page setting, you will see two bars with instructions; the first one with the university number and the second with PIN.
Fulfill both of these requirements and you will be on the page of application status. In case you do not remember the PIN, you will be unable to log in. For such problems, you can click on the forgotten PIN button and get a new PIN.
Once you log in to the NWU portal with your pin & pass, you will be able to see your Application’s status right in front of you.
Checking NWU Status through Cell Phone
Another way you can get information about North-West University’s application status is by contacting the office.
Basically, this method is for those who are not much familiar with the technology, As I have mentioned that I will guide you about two ways to check the NWU application status, it is the second methodology. Take a look!
Before you dig into details, you should know that if you are trying this method, you must have enough information about the applicant. So, all you need is to call the given number of the NWU helpline and wait until the person on the other side attends your call.
Once they pick up your call, ask them to check the application status. They will ask you the initial questions about who you are, or how you are related to the applicant if you are a parent or sibling. Further, you need an applicant’s PIN and University number.
As you provide all the required information, they will guide you about the status of your application. You may ask questions such as why the application is rejected or what is the next procedure if it is accepted.
Usual Application Statuses & their Meanings
No matter which method you adopt, you must have the numbers such as the University number and the PIN. Plus, you should understand the symbols and the codes. They will show you details about the application, I am going to mention all of them below, you can see one of these options.
North-West University Application Responses
- Received: In case you see this option on the screen, you should understand that the institute has not yet started the procedure but they have received your application.
- Pending: The “pending” code occurs when the applicant’s plea is reviewed but the institute does not make any decision. So, you may need to wait for a little longer.
- Conditional Offer: It is possible that you may need to fulfill the university conditions and then you will get a position in the program you have chosen.
- Firm Acceptance: This code appears when the institute has confirmed your admission or the plea is accepted without conditions.
- Unsuccessful: It is possible you do not provide sufficient documents or your grades do not match with the criteria, your application will be rejected. In case there are limited numbers of admissions, you can face this problem.
Problems You Can Face
You can face a problem in logging in, sometimes it occurs because of forgetting the password. But one can troubleshoot it using the “Forgotten Password” option on the screen. You may encounter a different kind of interface because they always update the instructions section, and their logging in methodology to ease the users. So do not panic in case the interface has changed, their requirements will stay the same.
Another problem students often complain about is the delay. It occurs if you do not provide all the documents NWU requires and sometimes because of the slow procedure or dealing with the thousands of admissions, NWU informs their applicants after the due duration. So, you do not need to worry about it if the application shows “Received” or “Pending” status.
You can also visit the NWU for further information if the application status is not changing for more than a month, they will guide you about the products and inform you of the status of your application. But it rarely happens that the university does not work on an application.
North-West University is one of the best higher educational institutes in South Africa, it is 124th in the world ranking and 3rd in the domestic ranking university. Getting admission to the NWU is not as simple as students imagine because they have a tough merit system with strict criteria. Anyhow, if you have applied for admission, you can check the progress of your application with the help of their official website.
In case you face a problem while checking the details, you may call the NWU helpline. In this way, they will guide you about further procedures and lead or suggest in case the application is rejected. However, I have explained both of these methods above with the contact number and link to the official website. You can pick up any method and check the status of your application. I hope this information helps you, thank you!
