About

The Common Application is a not-for-profit membership organization that, since its founding over 35 years ago, has been committed to providing reliable services that promote equity, access, and integrity in the college application process. We serve students, member institutions, and secondary schools by providing applications those students and school officials may submit to any of our more than 500 members. Membership is open to colleges and universities that promote access by evaluating students using a holistic selection process.
