Closing Out Applications at End of Cycle
Closing out G00-Available for Recommendation applications at the end of the admissions cycle
Ten days prior to the beginning of a term, any remaining applicants with only a G00-Available for Recommendation code will be closed out by applying a G90-Department Refusal code. The following message will appear in applicants’ Graduate School application portal:
G90-Department Refusal Code
|8/21/2023 10:05:24 AM||We are sorry to inform you that you have not been admitted to the Graduate School at UW-Madison|
Why not apply a G57 or G58 code instead?
It is important for data integrity that applicants who are denied admission are reported as such. Additionally, G57-Graduate School Withdrawal and G58-Department Withdrawal codes do not provide clear language that the applicant has been denied admission. Instead, applicants are confused why their applications were “withdrawn” as the G57 and G58 messages imply (see below).
G57-Graduate School Withdrawal
|8/21/2023 10:05:24 AM||Your application has been withdrawn from consideration.|
|8/21/2023 10:05:24 AM||Your application has been withdrawn from consideration by your program.|
