Common App or Coalition App

Students can apply using either the Coalition or Common App – either one – we have no preference, the choice is yours.

When deciding what schools you’ll be applying to, check what application the colleges you are interested in accept. This knowledge may help you choose the application that works best for you based on the schools to which you plan to apply.


Applications go live August 1.
