The Common Application

Thursday, October 06, 2011
During the college admissions process, you may find that some colleges and universities allow you to submit the Common Application instead of a school's regular application.

According to the Common Application's Web site, there are currently 456 schools that accept the application, both online and through the mail.

As you review each school's college admissions requirements, you may find that most schools have their own unique application. However, if some of the schools you are interested in accept the Common Application, then you may prefer to fill out this form, as it can be reused for other participating schools. In the event that you are applying to more than one member school, completing the Common Application will allow you to redirect time that would have been spent on multiple applications toward writing essays and improving your high school academic performance.

You can find a list of the schools that accept the Common Application at the organization's Web site,, where you can also download the form.

Colleges and universities also benefit from using the Common App. Writing in The Chronicle of Education, Eric Hoover states that many admissions deans say the Common Application has helped them recruit more first-generation and minority students.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800613287-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
