Submit App, Supp, & Payment Separately

The application, supplement, and payment submissions are three distinct processes.  Despite instructions and reminders, some students mistakenly believe that the application automatically follows a supplement and/or payment.  Please remind your students to confirm the status of their submissions within My Colleges.


Colleges See What Applicants See

When submitting, students must affirm that they have previewed the application and it looks exactly as they intend.  This step is especially important since responses accepted in the online system can sometimes be truncated on the printed page.  We have enhanced our instructions and support resources to remind students of this crucial fact.


"Required" Art & Athletic Supplements

If a student indicates in a college's Future Plans section that he or she intends to submit the Art and/or Athletic Supplement, the student will be required to complete the form before submitting the application.  To waive this requirement, the student simply needs to return to Future Plans change the response to the original question from yes to no.
