Madison, Wis. (April 6, 2016) – Students applying to Edgewood College for 2016-2017 will now have the ability to use the Common Application, an online system employed by nearly 700 colleges and universities in the U.S. and around the world.

By becoming a Common App member, Edgewood College widens its reach to students who may not have considered the College in the past. Students from across the country are able to explore the exceptional programs at Edgewood College and submit their application in a streamlined way when they are ready.

“We are honored to join the Common Application community.  This is an exciting opportunity as we strive to serve students and families who are seeking the right ‘fit’ for their college experience,” Christine Benedict, Vice President for Enrollment Management, said. “It’s important to know that we’re doing everything we can to be sure that an Edgewood College education is available for those who want to be a part of our learning community, and recognize the opportunity we offer to link what happens in the classroom with what’s happening in our world.”  

“Each of our new members comes to The Common Application with a unique mission and distinctive qualities that attract a broad range of bright and talented students,” said The Common Application CEO Paul Mott. “We are excited to welcome innovative institutions that all share our commitment to advancing college access.”

Common App accounts created will roll over to 2016-2017 and beyond. The answers for any of the questions that appear in the six sections of the “Common App” tab (Profile, Family, Education, Testing, Activities, and Writing) will be preserved. High school counselors are already using Common App Ready, a flexible advising tool, to introduce students and families to the college preparation and application processes whenever is best for individual needs.
