I was given a username and AU gmail account (ending in @student.american.edu)
Is this an indication that I’m in? I couldn’t log in the myAU portal because it says “Your account is not configured for accessing the myAU portal. Only current students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff may access the personalized areas of the portal.” but I could activate the student gmail account.
@sahmkc I went to https://myau.american.edu/ and just made an account. I saw on previous admissions threads on here that people did that for previous years, and I think being able to make an account indicates you’ve been admitted.
you are able to make an account and want to know for sure you got in go to life@AU tab, go to new students and on the right hand side there is enrollment agreement. It says congratulations on your admission to American. @nv9123 I saw this from last years regular admission thread
@maddiec I couldn’t get it to work either. I wouldn’t worry about it, because it’s really early in the process. My guess is that these accounts are set up in bunches and it will take a while to get everyone set-up.
Ha ha @sahmkc there’s solace in knowing im not the only one . My hope is once he’s at school , it will be better … by then I have a rising senior right behind him who just adores my helicoptering (is that a word ). Good luck and may we both be able to relax a bit after December 23rd or so . Crossing my fingers for both our boys !
@Inavir I can’t make an account either (I applied ED 1). I’m hoping that it’s just taking them awhile to set up all of the accounts, as @sahmkc said. I also cannot access my admissions portal (it says that the page no longer exists). Hopefully this is just a technological error as well! Good luck to all of you on your admissions!
Not that I know of and I would not worry about the portal not working for you. I think the earliest you will probably have confirmation is the 20th. That’s when some reps started calling students in their area last year. Some reps don’t call or email, so then you have to wait for the admissions to come in the mail.
@poliscilover222 you were able to make an account this morning? Can you view your aid package?
Do you get the message “Your account is not configured for accessing the myAU portal. Only current students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff may access the personalized areas of the portal.” at the main page of the portal?
