Common Application

The Common Application, also known informally as the Common App, is an electronic application system for undergraduate admissions to over 700 member colleges and universities. It is designed to combine questions from many college applications into one universal document that can be sent to any member college.

Depending on the college and/or major, the student may be required to answer supplemental questions. While each school has a different list of requirements, the Common App provides a general form requiring common information for all schools.

If you are applying to only ONE Common App member college, check if the school has its own application as this would be less time-consuming. DO NOT send both applications or you may delay your application process.
