Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the Common Application and how do I complete it?

The Common Application is an online, centralized college application used by over 600 educational institutions. With just one application, students can apply to 20 member schools, though schools may require separate supplemental data/questions along with the common application and an application fee for each school. The University of Mary Washington uses the Common Application exclusively for admissions. Get the Common App Checklist here.
