How Do I Do That?

A. Good question. Checking the status of a student's application is very easy. Just follow these steps below.

Check your application status button

Note: If you do not have the student's application ID number you can request that information from the Foundation by e-mailing us at scholarships@career.org or calling 202.336.6800. You will need to provide us with the following information:

  1. Go to our web site: www.imagine-america.org
  2. Click on the section "Check application status," which is located on the bottom right side of the page. It will look like this:
  3. You will then be presented with a page where you can enter the student's application ID number, which is given to the student after completing the application. The student's application ID number will consist of his/her last name followed by a combination of four numbers or letters. (Ex. JonesT4E6 or Adamske54)
    • Student's first and last name
    • Student's full address
    • Student's home phone number
    • Estimated time the student submitted their application

  4. After inputting the student's application ID number, click on "check status."
  5. You will then be shown a page that will have the student's application status at the top and the student's information listed below.
  6. If you have questions on the status meanings, just use the link "Click here for a description of this status." It will give you details of what each status means.

See, it is just that easy. We hope these steps are helpful to you. Just remember: if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at the Foundation. We are here to help you if you need to ask us, "How do I do that?".
