What information will I need to create a myGettysburg account?

In addition to your name and email address, you should know your Common Application ID (CAID) when you are ready to create your myGettysburg account. This number is found at the top of every page when you are logged in to your Common Application.

Where in myGettysburg is the application checklist?

Once your myGettysburg account has been processed, there will be links on both the left and right-hand sides of the myGettysburg home page to the Application Checklist.

What if I already have a myGettysburg account?

If you created your account before October 27, 2015, we encourage you to create a new account using your CAID as your login. This allows better matching of your account with your application documents.

Can I use myGettysburg to find out my admissions decision?

Admissions decisions are mailed to students and will not be posted in myGettysburg. You can expect your admissions decision to be mailed approximately:

  • mid-December for Early Decision I (Nov. 15 application deadline)
  • mid-February for Early Decision II (Jan. 15 application deadline)
  • late March for Regular Decision (Jan. 15 application deadline)

I haven't applied yet. Can I check if my transcript has been received?

myGettysburg will only show documents which have been processed for students from whom we have received an application. Once we have received your application, it can take a few days for your supporting materials to be processed and listed in myGettysburg. You are also welcome to contact the Admissions Office at 800-431-0803 at any time to check your application and other supporting documents.
