Common App & SENDedu

Common App
The Common Application (Common App) is an online platform that allows you to complete one application and submit it to numerous post secondary institutions.  Colleges request a large amount of information from applicants. The Common App simplifies the process by collecting much of this information all in one place. This prevents you from repeating the details of your background, education, activities, and testing over and over again for every school you apply to.  Using this platform also enables you to stay on top of deadlines and manage tasks.  

As your counselor, I am able to upload transcripts and Letters of Recommendation to the Common App.  These items automatically get sent to all colleges you apply at.  Remember, if you need a Letter of Recommendation, you must complete the Request for Letter of Recommendation form.  The Request for Letter of Recommendation form must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the deadline date.  A copy of the Request for Letter of Recommendation form has been attached below. 

To view the institutions (over 700) that accept the Common App and to create an account, visit the Common App website.

SENDedu
SENDedu is a free, secure electronic document transfer service for counselors, teachers, and other officials involved in the application completion process.  Some colleges request that transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc. be sent via SENDedu.  

If a college/university uses SENDedu, you will be given an Official Document Request form to submit to me.  Once I receive the Official Document Request form, I will send your transcript via SENDedu.  If you need a Letter of Recommendation, you must complete the Request for Letter of Recommendation form.  The Request for Letter of Recommendation form must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the deadline date.  

A sample Official Document Request form along with a Request for Letter of Recommendation form has been attached below.
