If you’re ever filed an immigration form or application with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), you may have heard of the feature “myProgress.” USCIS created myProgress (formally known as personalized processing times) to improve the customer experience, reduce the need for case status inquiries, and provide more transparency so applicants know what to expect after filing their forms. 

Let’s break down the basics of myProgress, including which forms it is currently available for and where you can find it in your USCIS online account.

Understanding myProgress

As part of the USCIS online account system (also called myUSCIS), myProgress is a feature that allows users to track the progress of their immigration applications and petitions submitted to USCIS. myProgress offers applicants personalized estimates of the waiting time for significant milestones and actions related to their case within their online account. This includes updates on key stages of the application process, including the final decision on their case.


Personalized estimates in myProgress are based on case type and historical USCIS data, and are not a guarantee of timing. Many factors influence the processing time for each individual form or application filed, and processing times are always subject to change.

Where Can I Find myProgress?

To access myProgress, you need to either create a USCIS online account or log into an existing account and select your pending application. If you filed online or linked your paper-filed forms to your account using receipt numbers, you will find a myProgress tab for your application.
Within this tab, you will be able to view the estimated time remaining until your case receives a decision, as well as checkmarks indicating completion of various milestones in the process, including:

  • Confirmation USCIS has received your application;
  • Application progress through preprocessing and adjudicative stages;
  • The final decision on your case.
