The Common Application

What is The Common Application?

The Common Application is a not-for-profit organization that serves students and member institutions by providing an admission application that students may submit to numerous members.

Why use The Common Application?

Once completed online or in print, copies of the Application for Undergraduate Admission can be sent to any number of participating colleges. The same is true of the School Report, Midyear Report and Teacher Evaluation forms. This allows you to spend less time on the busywork of applying for admission and more time on what’s really important: college research, visits, essay writing and senior year coursework.
