The Common Application has made the college and university application process much easier for many students. By permitting students to apply to multiple schools using a single application form, the Common Application streamlines the process and saves applicants loads of time.

The idea behind the Common Application is that students need to fill out only one application for all of the schools they apply to. Although the application was first accepted by only about 15 schools, today it is accepted by more than 500 colleges and universities in the United States. This means that you can fill out one Common Application and use it for any of these schools.

It's important to remember that not all schools accept the common application. Be sure to verify whether a school accepts it or not — never assume! Also, never let a school’s stance on the Common Application determine whether or not you apply there. If you use the Common Application or not, just make sure to find the school that's right for you and APPLY!
