Important Senior Information
The Common Application
Over 900 colleges now use the Common Application to save time and be more efficient. This allows students to send one application to all colleges that accept the Common Application. You can check on the college’s website under Admissions to see if they are a part of the Common Application pool. There is usually an application processing fee attached to each application so please be aware of this if you apply to multiple schools. (For more information regarding the Common Application, please visit the official website at www.commonapp.org) and see links below.
