How does an applicant confirm that its application for FHA approval was received?

An applicant can check the status of its application at any time by logging into the online application using the same user ID and password that was used to submit the application.  If the status of the application is shown as Submitted then the application has been received.   

The FHA online application is available on the How to Become an FHA-Approved Lender link in the Approvals & Renewals section at: https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/housing/sfh/lender/
