The Common Application Overview

The Common Application process is becoming popular for students applying for college. There are about 255 common application members of colleges anduniversities. Many students who are applying to various colleges and don¡¦t want to keep creating duplication of information, difference essays, shortanswers, etc are using the process. The URL for the common application is:

http://www.commonapp.org/

The purpose of the Common Application is to serve students by facilitating and simplifying the college application process for those seeking admission to member institutions. In so doing, the Common Application introduces candidates to a broader range of institutions than they might otherwise consider, provides immediate access to application forms, and may be used as an educational tool in preparing students for the college selection and application process.

If you have already applied at a particular college or universities do not duplicate the process on the common application website. You only need one application submitted per student to a college.

TRANSCRIPTS, LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATIONS, etc:

High School Transcripts, Letters of Recommendations, Counselor Report, Secondary Report, need to be submitted to the colleges/universities prior or by theregistration or scholarship deadline.
