Higher Education Frequently Asked Questions I have submitted an application, can I check on my application, referee or document status? Yes, you can login to the application portal and check the status of your application. More information about the meaning of the status markers can be found below. You do not have to check your application status using the portal however, you will be sent a formal email as soon as possible once a decision is made. Please use http://www.psychologyreference.org/ to check your referee and reference status. When used correctly this system works well and Cairnmillar cannot take responsibility for checking this for you.
