College Applications

At Navigation Academy, we help you determine which college applications you need to complete.

What does each school require?

We help you based on where you are applying and what each school requires. There are many elements in the college planning process, from compiling a list of potential schools to figuring out how to pay for college. There is one step in this process, however, that is particularly crucial to getting into college. That is making sure you’ve identified and submitted all of your college applications and on time!

Types of College Applications:

When you start applying to different schools, you might come across a few different types of college applications. The Common Application is the most popular, and more than 800 colleges use it to streamline their admissions process. Not all schools accept the Common Application, so you might also need to fill out separate applications for individual institutions. There are also two other application formats you may come across:

The Universal Application: Fewer than 100 schools accept the Universal Application.

The Coalition Application: Many schools that accept the Coalition Application also accept the Common Application.

Make sure you know early on which application you need to fill out for each of the schools on your list.
