The Common Application

The Common Application is used by over 800 American Universities.  This is a standard online application form that requires all students to submit academic information, extracurricular information, and teacher references.  Students may increase their chances of receiving an offer of admission by selecting “Early Decision” or Early Action” on their university choices.

Please read what this may mean if you have applied to MORE than one university choice in the U.S.  Universities may still require SAT or ACT scores, other related essays, reference letters, interviews, portfolios or auditions.  If a university is NOT a member of the Common Application, students must apply to the institution as directed by their website.


Admissions Testing for U.S. Universities

Some universities in the U.S. may require students to complete an SAT or an ACT test for admission or scholarship purposes.
