Common Application

Common Application

The Common Application is a standard application that is accepted at over 800 colleges and universities worldwide. It allows students to fill out an application once, and submit it to many institutions, instead of having to reapply multiple times to each institution.

Through the Common Application, students have the ability to start and stop and save their work so that they work on it until they feel it is ready to send to a college/university.  Students may begin working on the common application during their junior year.

Schools in Colorado that accept the common application are Colorado State University, Regis University, Colorado College, University of Denver and Naropa University.
