The Common Application

The Common Application allows the student to complete one application online which then submits the same information to all the schools the student designates. Some colleges may require supplemental information in addition to the Common Application. For the Common Application website, go to


Every student, regardless of financial situation, will be required to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid for college.  The FAFSA is now opening on OCTOBER 1st. This change also affects college scholarship and admission deadlines.  It is important to check with each college to know when applications are due. Some scholarships and financial aid are based on a first come, first served basis so it is important to fill out the FAFSA and get it sent to any college your child might be interested in.  There is a working document with scholarships on the Counseling Center webpage.  Please check back often to see updates.
