Common Application

What is the Common Application?

Is the Common Application free?

Yes, the Common Application is free to use. However, you may still be subject to each university’s individual application fee.

What are some advantages of using the Common Application?

For users, this service simplifies the admissions process and serves as an organizational tool.
