The Common Application
Counselor Update

Green Check Reminder

Some counselors and applicants continue to report that they cannot submit forms because green checks are not appearing on completed sections. The Support Team can assist anyone in this situation--and we also have a solution you can try yourself if the problem is cropping up in the Language section.

Confirming Submission on Dashboard

This year, students submit payment at the time of application. (Students using fee waivers will not be asked for payment information.) While payment and application submission are now part of a single process, it is still possible for a student to submit a payment without the application if he or she does not complete the entire submission sequence. For this reason, we recommend that students review their Dashboard to ensure that they have completed all submission requirements.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today's update will be the only one we send this week. We'll resume these messages next Tuesday. Enjoy the holiday!
