Complete Guide: Which Schools Use the Common Application?

College Admissions



Are you applying to college soon? If so, you've probably heard of the Common Application—an online application you can use for more than 800 colleges. Since you only have to fill out one application, it saves you time when applying to college.

But which colleges use the Common Application? And which Common Application schools are in your state? We have a complete list here, broken down by state and updated for the 2019-20 academic year.


What Is the Common Application?

The Common Application is a college application shared by its member colleges. Member colleges then accept this application from prospective students.

So what does this mean for you? Instead of filling out an individual application for each school, all you have to do is fill out the Common Application once and send it to whichever colleges you want to apply to that accept it.

However, this doesn't mean you can apply to dozens of colleges with the click of a button. Many colleges have additional supplements you have to submit. These are forms with additional questions and sometimes an extra essay.

Furthermore, most colleges have application fees, so you can't apply to hundreds of schools—unless, of course, you have a lot of money to burn!

Finally, the Common Application only accepts colleges that use a holistic review process. In other words, Common Application colleges look at each applicant as a whole, taking into account grades, SAT/ACT scores, essays, extracurricular activities, letters of recommendation, etc. Because of this, all of these components are part of the Common Application. (However, the essay is no longer required for all schools.)


Who Uses the Common Application?

More than 800 colleges use the Common Application! At least one college in every state accepts it, with the exception of North Dakota. In addition, more than 50 international universities from 18 countries accept the Common Application.

While the Common Application is used by many private universities, some public school systems, including many schools in the State University of New York (SUNY) system, accept it as well. However, you should be aware that public schools tend to have their own application systems.

Lastly, the Common Application is accepted by the following top colleges and universities:
