Rolling Over - Common App
The Common Application rolls over at the end of July. The Application for first-year applicants (Class of 2021) will be offline from July 28-31, 2020. Additionally, the transfer application will close on July 30. Yes, we are approaching August, the month when seniors can officially begin their applications to college.
With the rollover in process, students can continue to explore 900 colleges and universities that partner with The Common Application. Additionally, students can read up on tips for navigating Colleges Profiles.
Most importantly, students who have not yet polished their Common Application essay should be working on their "authentic" story writing. And parents who would like to learn more about college costs can read about making college more affordable!
