How to Apply

We are aware of, and sensitive to, the issues students and counselors have had in attempting to submit Common Application materials because of technical difficulties with www.commonapp.org. We are monitoring the situation closely. At this point, we do expect to be able to release our Early Decision and Early Action notifications on time.
