"Adding St. Francis to the Common Application provides more flexibility and gives St. Francis College wider outreach in recruiting new students in the United States and abroad," said Robert Oliva, Director of Recruitment & Special Events.

The Common Application is a free, online college application platform that serves and supports more than three million applicants, counselors, and teachers across the United States and around the world every year.

By becoming a Common Application member, St. Francis gains exposure to students who may not have otherwise considered the College while also making the application process more efficient.

The Common Application is used by more than one million students who are the first in their family to pursue a college degree; a population that overlaps with so many St. Francis College students and graduates, making the addition of the Common App a perfect connection.

In addition to the initial application process, Common Application also provides a mobile app that keeps students up to date on their progress in the application process.
