Common Filing Tasks

Check Application Status

Beginning on the next business day following the filing of an application, you may want to check the application’s status to ensure a successful submission. There are two ways to check the status of your application: Using the Universal Licensing System or calling the FCC.

Using the Universal Licensing System

To check the status of an application, go to the Universal Licensing System and:
  1. Select Search Applications.
  2. You have the option of doing either a basic application search or advanced application search. For more information on the application search functions see the application search help by clicking on the help button at the top right of the application search screen.

Calling the FCC

Alternatively to ULS, you can call the FCC’s Consumer Center at 1-888-CALL-FCC (225-5322) to check your application status.
