It is that time of year when summer ends, especially for families in the South! Regardless of where you live, the Common Application refreshes every year. Common Application will begin to refresh its system in just a few weeks, and the application will be closed during this time. Don't worry. It is unlikely that any of your work on the Common App Tab will be deleted, but to be safe; please print or save that information. Watch this 1-minute video from Wendy Williams regarding the rollover.
