Juniors can start the Common App early
The Common App is one college application accepted by over 600 colleges and universities nationwide. If you create an account as a junior, it can be used next school year. Get started! Details can be found by clicking here
Here are some key point as copied from this page:
What is Account Rollover?
Account Rollover will let anyone with a Common App account maintain that account from one year to the next. It is intended to be a learning tool, not a means of completing college applications prior to senior year.
How will Account Rollover work?
After the 2016-2017 Common App launches on August 1, you’ll be able to sign in using the same credentials as your 2015-2016 Common App. Upon that first sign in, we’ll ask if you would like to roll over your account from 2015-2016.
What information will carry over from one year to the next?
We will preserve the answers you provided to any questions that appear in the six sections of the “Common App” tab: Profile, Family, Education, Testing, Activities, and Writing.
