The Common Application is recommended for over 700 selective private and public colleges and universities.  Many of these institutions use the form exclusively.  All give equal consideration to the Common Application and the college's own form.  On this website, discover a list of colleges and universities that accept the Common Application, the actual application, and supplementary forms.  If a college does not take the Common Application, then check the admissions section of the college's website to find their online application.
