Each year on August 1, Common App launches the refreshed application with updated information, including any new questions and new colleges. Students will need to sign in and refresh their Common App accounts for the new cycle.
Many colleges change their questions from year to year, so if students started working on responses to college-specific questions, they will be deleted.
For more details about how account rollover works, be sure to reference these Solutions Center articles for first-year and transfer students, as well as tips located in the CA application guide.
Mark your calendars for the system refresh dates:
- The first-year application will close to applicants and recommenders at 5 pm ET on July 28, 2022.
- The transfer application will close to applicants and recommenders at 5 pm ET on July 29, 2022.
