Colleges that Accept the Common Application

The Common Application, which can be completed online or in print, is an admissions application that students can submit to any of the 500+ colleges and universities that currently accept it. That means if you apply to schools that all accept the Common Application, you may just have to fill out one application and then decide which schools to submit it to. Of course, always double check the application requirements for every school you’re applying to and make sure you’re not overlooking an extra question or essay they may require.
