The Common Application also called the Common App, is an online college application portal used by over 975 colleges and universities.
College admissions changes each year and so does the Common App. For example, last year, the Common App introduced pronouns and a gender category in the profile section for all applicants. An optional COVID-19 essay prompt was also added for the 2020-2021 application cycle and it is still available in the writing section. This prompt allows applicants to address any challenges they encountered (lower grades, struggles to learn virtually, or how they persevered during the pandemic).
One of the biggest changes to the Common App this year is an enhancement to the platform. Students can now search for participating member colleges by applying filters in the “College Search” tab. You can look for colleges in certain states, a certain distance from your home, test-optional, or even colleges that do not require an essay.
