FISHER COLLEGE JOINS COMMON APP FOR 2019-2020

 

(Boston, MA) – Students applying to Fisher College for 2019-2020 will have the ability to do so through Common App, a powerful online college application platform that serves more than three million applicants, teachers, counselors and advisors across all 50 United States and around the world each year.

Common App is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to access, equity, and integrity in the college admission process. By becoming a Common App member, Fisher College will streamline the application process for students interested in applying to multiple institutions, and gain exposure to students who may not have otherwise considered Fisher College. Common App helps reduce common barriers to the college application process, including making the fee waiver process more efficient for students in need. Each year, more than one million applicants use the Common App. One-third of those applicants are the first in their family to pursue a college degree.

In addition to accessing the online application system, by joining Common App, Fisher College is helping to make additional tools and services available to students and those who support students through Common App, including financial aid and scholarship information, virtual mentors, online portfolios, and a vast library of counselor resources available in English and Spanish. Common App also offers 24/7/365 technical support to all applicants and recommended using the system.

"We joined Common App to help simplify the college application experience for students and counselors," said Thomas Englehardt, Director of Admissions. "Our new partnership with the Common App will help Fisher College educate more students about the value, attainability, and affordability of a Fisher College degree."

Students can create a Common App account now because their account will roll over from year to year. Common App members can also use the Common App for transfer, a separate application designed exclusively to meet the needs of transfer and adult student populations.
