Applying Early

Hi all, I have a brief question regarding early applications and the commonapp.

If I apply for Early Action/Early Decision, will I be able to change/edit my commonapp after I submit my early action/decision application?

    For other colleges, yes.

    Common App Support Center
    I want to create an alternate version of my application.

    Before you create alternate versions of your application, please read and understand the following important information:

    **Once the original version of the application is submitted, it is electronically sealed. Although a student may submit to other colleges using this application version, it cannot be edited.

    **If you have any questions, please ask the Support Team *before* submitting your supplement.

    You can create an alternate version of your application by following the steps below.

    Step1: You must submit the Common Application to at least one institution. When this is complete, you must log out of your account.

    Step 2: You must then click on the following weblink: https://commonapp.org/Application/ApplicantLogin.aspx?allowcopy=true. You will be presented with a login screen to the Common Application. You must then enter your existing Username and Password and click Login.

    Step 3: You will be presented with a screen titled ‘Application Versions,’ where you will see information about the application that you’ve already submitted. You may then click on the ‘Replicate’ link to create an alternate version of your submitted application. When this is complete, a second version will be visible on this screen. A special drop down will appear in the upper right corner of the application to allow quick access to all your applications.

    Step 4: You may edit the alternate version to allow for college-specific information.
