    College Applications

    Common Application

    The Common Application is a not-for-profit organization that serves students and member institutions by providing an admission application – online and in print – that students may submit to any of our 415 members.

    Once completed online or in print, copies of the Application for Undergraduate Admission can be sent to any number of participating colleges. The same is true of the School Report, Midyear Report, Final Report and Teacher Evaluation forms. This allows you to spend less time on the busywork of applying for admission, and more time on what's really important: college research, visits, essay writing, and senior year coursework.

    Top Ten Rules for Selecting a College

    College Planning for Students with Disabilities
    As a student with disabilities, you have a legal right to free public education (up until high school) that meets your individual needs. Above the high school level, a school is only required to be accessible and to provide reasonable accommodation (through additional programs or services).

    Selective Service System
    The Selective Service now accepts early submission of registration information by 17-year old men, who will then be automatically registered when they turn 18. Under Federal law, virtually all men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Registration is required to qualify for student loans and grants, job training and Federal employment. Under early submission, men 17 years and 3 months old can register, and the Agency holds their registration information and automatically enters their data into the system when they turn 18. The fastest way to register is on-line.
