Early Deadlines

Some people may be out trick-or-treating, but we know that others of you are putting the final touches on your Early Decision or Early Action application.  For those in the first group – be safe and have fun.  For those in the second group – a few tips to help get you through the next 24 – 36 hours.

1. The submission date and time displayed in the My Colleges section is recorded in Eastern Time. BUT, as long as you submit on deadline day by 11:59 PM your local time, you’ve met the deadline. So in this case it would be 11:59 PM on Saturday, November 1.

2. If you are up, we are up.  Our support team is available 24/7.  We are here to assist with any questions you have. Just click Help Center from within your account and go to the “Ask a Question” tab. You can also access the Help Center directly at appsupport.commonapp.org or recsupport.commonapp.org.

3. If any section of your application is showing as incomplete even though you have answered all required questions, we can assist. Just click Help Center from within your account.

4. The School Report and any additional components (ED Agreement, etc.) should be submitted or postmarked by the application deadline date listed. Some schools may be more lenient with school officials. You will have to contact the school to see if they will accept school forms later than the stated deadline.
