52 Colleges and Universities Plan to Accept the Coalition Application

by Tyler Nakatsu, on Sep 27, 2016 5:04:00 AM


My college list was long. Each required an application, an essay and supplements on different sites, the Common App, and one I even applied by hand and mailed it in. Today’s admissions landscape is much different. Students now have access to tools that are changing the game when it comes to applying to college.

The Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success Application is a new college application that is available to students in high school. In its inaugural year, the “Coalition App” is available to the class of 2017 to apply to college, and all high school students in any grade to use. For a detailed overview of the Coalition Application, download our brief guide.
