What is Common App?
DCAD Joins Common App
Common App is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to access, equity, and integrity in the college admission process. As a Common App member, Delaware College of Art and Design helps streamline the application process for students interested in applying to multiple institutions.
What are the benefits of Common App?
Common App helps simplify the college application process, including making the fee waiver process more efficient for eligible students. Each year, more than one million applicants use the Common App. One-third of those applicants are the first in their family to pursue a college degree.
In addition to accessing the online application system, by joining Common App, DCAD is helping to make additional tools and services available to students and those who support students through Common App, including a mobile app, financial aid and scholarship information, virtual mentors, online portfolios, and a vast library of counselor resources available in English and Spanish. Common App also offers 24/7/365 technical support to all applicants and recommenders using the system.
Students who are thinking of applying to Delaware College of Art and Design can create a Common App account now because their account will roll over to next year’s admissions season. Common App members can also use the Common App for transfer, a separate application designed exclusively to meet the needs of transfer and adult student populations.
