The Common App Just Made It Easier to Apply to College
The Common Application has just made applying to college even easier.
Yes, you heard that right.
The Common App is well known for its ability to allow college hopefuls to apply to hundreds of colleges across the country with just one universal application.
Now, the Common App has a new, well, app. For your phone.
The addition improves access for all, but especially those who can’t readily access a computer or reliable internet connection.
“Too often, lack of access to computers or broadband internet can prevent students from applying to college at all, much less realizing its promise of social and economic mobility,” said Jenny Rickard, President & CEO of Common App. “This is about helping students apply to college, research financial aid and scholarships, and get advice from counselors—virtually anytime, anywhere.”
The Common App saw nearly 400,000 web-based applications submitted via mobile phone in 2019 and so hopes to provide a more streamlined experience and close the digital divide.
