Most students begin with these applications to colleges and universities. For schools that are NOT CUNY, SUNY, or do not appear on the Common Application, visit the specific school’s website to get instructions as to how to apply.

Also, please
NOTE: Very often, schools may have SUPPLEMENTAL APPLICATIONS that you must complete ALONG with the regular application. You may have to visit the school’s website to see what is needed. For the most part, CUNY schools do not have supplemental applications, unless you are applying to one of their special programs (Macaulay Honors, Sophie Davis, etc.) To see which SUNY schools require supplementals, you can check HERE.

The Common Application

The Common Application is a not-for-profit organization that serves students and member institutions by providing an admission application – online and in print - that students may submit to any of our hundreds of members. Once completed online or in print, copies of the Application for Undergraduate Admission can be sent to any number of participating colleges. The same is true of the School Report, Midyear Report, Final Report and Teacher Evaluation forms. This allows you to spend less time on the busywork of applying for admission, and more time on what's really important: college research, visits, essay writing, and senior year coursework.

In addition to the Common Application, you may also have to complete a school-specific SUPPLEMENTAL. You can check to see if the school that you are applying to needs one HERE.
