ATTENTION CLASS OF 2019:
While the Common Application accepts applications for over 700 colleges, the Coalition provides applications to more than 140 colleges and universities, most of whom also accept Common Applications. Some colleges, such as the University of California and California State colleges, only accept applications through their own systems. See College-Specific Applications for more information.
If your college offers admission through either the Common OR Coalition Applications, the Fairview Counseling Office encourages students to apply using the Common Application during this early phase of the Coalition system launch. It is recommended that the Coalition Application be used only for the four colleges that allow admission exclusively through this new platform. These colleges include:
- University of Washington
- University of Florida
- University of Maryland, College Park
- Virginia Tech
If you prefer to use the Coalition Application for other colleges, please see your counselor.
