What is the universal application?
Similar to the Common Application, the Universal Application is an online application process that allows student applicants to fill out once and then submit to any of the 43+ schools that accept the Universal Application. The Universal Application is a for profit internet site. The Common Application is run by the schools who are members of the Common Application group.
The Universal College Application (UCA) is a web-based college application process aimed at overhauling and streamlining the modern online college admissions process. It is seeking to develop a collaborative partnership between applicants, schools, the testing organizations and other appropriate non-profits in an effort to make the whole application process faster, easier, and more inclusive. A central goal is to expand the pool of people applying to college and it is working with NACAC (the National Association for College Admissions Counseling) to get as wide based participation as possible.
The Universal Application is a “form application” that several schools will accept as an official admissions application. What this means is that instead of having to fill out an individual application for every school to which you wish to apply, you might only need to fill out the Universal Application once and send it to several schools. The tricky part is that at this time only 43 colleges accept the Universal Application; check their list of member schools and if at least two schools match up with the schools on your prospective list, go ahead and use it. If only one of your prospective schools is on the list, don’t bother with it – just use that school’s application.
Best of luck!
An application you fill out to apply to colleges. Like the Common Application, but used by fewer schools. Link here: https://www.universalcollegeapp.com/
The universal application is another free application service. There are more than 70 colleges on the application and some overlap with the common app and some don’t. It is basically the same as the original common app, and the essays overlap. Some colleges have supplements. I wish there were only one application as the universal application is confusing to many kids. But it is there, and it is worth doing if more than two colleges use it that are not on any other application service.
The Universal Application works much like the common app. One application for multiple universities.
The Universal Application is another alternative to the Common Application that colleges may choose to use. When you use the Universal Application (or Common Application), you fill out the majority of information once for all participating colleges to which you’re applying, and then complete supplement information specific to each college. Currently, there are 44 colleges that accept the Universal Application: https://www.universalcollegeapp.com/colleges
The Universal College Application is an online admissions application consortium for college-bound students, and can be found at universalapplication.com.
The universal application is similar to the “Common App”, as it allows you to submit one set of information to many campuses, in essence streamlining the application process. They currently have 44 members, less than that of the Common App, but depending on the schools you are interested in, you may find yourself completing both.
This allows a student to complete one application and to submit it to a number of institutions. The program is still developing and does not cover most colleges and universities as of fall 2012.
The UNIVERSAL APPLICATION is a single college application that can be used to apply to nearly 500 colleges and universities both in the US as well as internationally. It essentially allows students to complete one application but apply to many schools on their college lists. A couple of things to keep in mind:
1) you will complete one registration process and then be able to “populate” your Common Application profile with all of the schools on your list that will accept the Common Application
2) once the universal application is complete and submitted to one school, it cannot be edited (but the supplemental, school-specific materials can be edited)
3) many schools within the Common Application system will require additional supplemental materials
4) your letters of recommendation from teachers and your school counselor are managed through this Common Application
5) test scores and transcripts must be sent separately
Generally speaking, the Common Application is incredibly helpful in streamlining the amount of work you need to do within the college application process, as long as you use it correctly.
TThe Universal College Application was launched in 2007 to give students another (and some say, easier) way to apply to college.
Students can use this one application to apply to dozens of colleges and universities. Some schools, however, still may require additional paperwork or materials, such as a college admissions essay or a recommendation letter.
The premise of the Universal College Application wasn’t new. The Common Application was introduced in 1975, and students also use it to apply to multiple colleges and universities with only one form.
There is an application called the Common Application. You can fill this out and send it to multiple colleges and universities. The institution that you’re sending it to must be a Common App school. If you want to apply to a school that is not a subscriber of this service you will have to fill out the schools’ admissions application.
You have to fill out one application which serves as your application for several colleges. This saves your time and energy of filling out individual applications. This is a good option till you want to study in the listed colleges which are 43+ presently.
The Universal Application is an online application similar to the Common Application, just used by different schools.

The Universal Application is an online application service — very similar to the Common Application. The big difference is that the Universal Application has a little over 50 schools in its consortium and the Common Application has over 450. There’s no advantage in using one service over the other. If you decide to use the Universal Application this year, just be sure that all or most of the schools to which you are applying are members so that you save time, energy and anxiety!
