Why do universities choose to use the Common Application as their college application platform?
Universities can reach more students.
The Application supports college access by creating a more accessible way to waive fees and reach programs that can benefit students.
Colleges can clarify their strategies and use best practices.
The Common Application for the Class of 2021 will go live on August 1. Most colleges will upload their supplemental questions in September. With new colleges utilizing this platform, students should know that applications will increase at most of these schools, which means the competition is more likely to increase. Stay motivated this summer, create your Common Application, and make sure you are writing an application that helps you stand out to the Admissions Office.
