The Common Application
Daily Counselor Update

November 12, 2013

As promised, we are sending daily updates regarding system performance and support. We will continue this communication as long as there is news to share.

Student Name in Support Requests. If you submit a question because you are having a problem with a particular applicant account, please include the name of the student in your message. We want to assist you as quickly as possible, and we can't research the problem without that the name of the applicant.


Student Tip of the Day. Students can edit their Common App at any time--but they can't make changes to an application they've already submitted.
Recommender Tip of the Day. Don't forget the Training Resources section of the Help Center. There you will find several tools to assist you in advising students and teachers, including interactive videos on completing recommendations and submitting applications.
