The application, supplement, and payment submissions are three distinct processes. Despite instructions and reminders, some students mistakenly believe that the application automatically follows a supplement and/or payment. Please confirm the status of submissions within the "My Colleges" section.Critical Steps for Successful Support
If you have any problems, all support emails are sent from the "commonapp.net" domain. It is critical that you ensure that both "commonapp.net" and "commonapp.org" are on the safe list and/or address book for your email accounts. This step is especially important for AOL users.Before You Submit...
Clicking "Submit" on your application is like dropping it in a mailbox: you cannot retrieve it, and you cannot edit it. To avoid "clicker's remorse," remember the following:
- Do not name specific colleges or tailor essays to specific colleges.
- Be sure to Preview your work and print it out before submitting.
- Make sure you have attached the correct documents.
If you enter an incorrect email address for yourself, or misspell your name, you will wind up with multiple accounts. Be sue to double check your personal information. If you still wind up with multiple accounts, the Common App Support Team can help you merge them.
