Application Links Galore!

If you are applying to any number of private colleges across the United States, you are likely to have already started your Common Application account (if you haven’t, that’s ok – but now would be a great time!)  And what is that Common App all about anyway?  Read this post for more info.

Even though you can apply to over 500 colleges via the Common App (which 500? Check this list), there are many that require you to fill out their specific school or state application.

Here are a whole bunch of links that you may need to apply to a variety of colleges:

  • University of California – 9 campuses, one application here.  Open now!  Must submit by November 30th.
  • California State University – 23 campuses all on this site.  Opens for Fall 2015 applications October 1.  Must submit by November 30th.

Here are a number of schools that are not on the Common Application to which California students frequently apply:

University of Alabama (open for Fall 2015 applications!)
University of Arizona
(open for Fall 2015 applications!)
Arizona State University (open for Fall 2015 applications!)
