While many of the challenges with the Common Application portal have been solved, we have heard from several students, teachers, and counselors that the submission process can be slower during peak usage times. Therefore, if you have finished your application and are simply waiting for the system to allow you to upload or submit your application, our advice to you is to save your work and get some sleep.

Note: Regular Action applicants will receive their admission decision via their applicant portal on Tuesday, March 15 at 4 pm MDT. Deferred applicants from the early rounds will also receive their decision at this time. If you are awaiting your admission decision, check your email for instructions on accessing your applicant portal.
