Here is how to check the UJ application status and what it means. Stay with us.
Open the UJ Portal
First of all, you need to go to the official website of the University of Johannesburg or visit this page to check UJ application status.
Enter Your Required Details
After clicking on the link mentioned above, a page will open on your screen. All you have to do is enter your details to complete the process. Fill in your details, such as your name, student number, email, etc. You may also need to provide a password in the required box to get access.

UJ Application Status Results and their Meaning
More than knowing about your UJ application status is required; one should know the meaning of the status they are getting on their admission application. So here is the complete guide on the possible UJ application status results and their meaning.
If logging into your account shows you a “pending review” status on your application, the university has received your application and hasn’t processed it yet. So be patient and give some time to the university to analyze your application and announce a decision.
My application status was “Requires Action” when I submitted it in UJ, and checked it after a few days. I discovered that a few important pieces of data need to be included in my application. So I visited my online application, filled in the data and resubmitted my application.
Simple as that. Don’t panic if your application status is “Requires action” Just update the required information in your application, and Voila, you are done.
Be happy if your UJ application status shows “admitted” because your application has been accepted in the department. So pack your bags. You are just a few steps back from learning at your dream university.
To confirm your admission in UJ some faculties have certain requirements that students must fulfill. Therefore, if your chosen faculty or department has put your application under “Provisional Admission” status, you need to submit pending items your instructor asks you to and complete the admission process successfully.
Cleared Provisional Admission
If you have fulfilled the remaining application requirements that your faculty has asked you to complete, your application status will change from “Provisional Admission” to “Cleared Provisional Admission.” Take a breath of relief when your status changes to “Cleared Provisional Admission” because it means you have met the faculty requirements successfully.
This status is a little heartbreaking because it shows that the program you have selected to study in UJ has denied your application for some reasons. It could be because you still need to meet the criteria they seek in students.
Another heartbreaking UJ application status is “Quota Filled.” If you see this on your UJ application status, it means your admission was unsuccessful. Despite you meeting all the basic requirements of admission in your preferred department, unfortunately, they can’t take you because seats are already full now.
Any student who withdraws their application due to any reason might see “Canceled” on their online application as their application status.
