The Common Application is the most widely used college application, with over 400 colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad accepting it. Chances are, if you’re applying to college in the coming months, you’ll most likely use the Common Application for at least one of your schools.
This week, the Common Application announced the addition of 37 new member colleges, raising the total number to 490. The new members include 9 public colleges, 5 overseas universities, and 2 historically black colleges. You can see the complete list of new members here.
