Common questions about applications
On the Status of Application page, each item will be marked "Received" on the date it was submitted or uploaded online. Once all materials are submitted, you will receive an automated email alerting you that your application is entering the review process. Please allow 3-4 weeks for ABS staff to conduct a comprehensive review of all materials. Once the review is complete and your application is approved, you will receive a second automated email alerting you of the approval status. At that time, the Application Approval section on the Status of Application page will change to "Approved."
