The Common Application is used by over 600 American universities. It is somewhat akin to UCAS, in that you will save time by being able to complete information and essays that you can submit to multiple universities. However, bear in mind that approximately two thirds of universities ask for supplemental information and/or essays.
To help students and schools complete these forms, we have provided a step-by-step student guide to completing the Common Application, as well as our step-by-step school's guide to completing the Common Application School Forms.
Also, be sure to view our Transcript page for IB, Scottish and A-level sample transcripts and school profile.
*Please note that the information in the step-by-step guides (both school and student) has been provided as a resource. While we strive to be thorough and comprehensive, we cannot take responsibility for any inaccuracies. We highly suggest that you confirm with the Common Application or with the US university admissions office for the most up-to-date and official information.
