Kim Duckworth - Thursday, March 24, 2016

Unveiling in April 2016:

  • University of Washington, University of Florida and University of Maryland College Park will use exclusively for 2017 applicants for admissions

  • New online admissions/application tool will compete with the space now occupied by the Common Application

  • 91 member colleges will use in total. Most will also accept the Common Application 

  • The Locker, the most controversial of the Coalition’s college planning tools is a place for students to store documents for college applications. Examples of what a student might store in “The Locker” would be a resume, a graded assignment, a research paper, a scientific abstract, a video or a recording.

  • Partnered with Naviance in the second year

  • Future for The Coalition application may or may not allow for common essay that can be viewed by all colleges. Some member colleges may individualize their application without a common essay available.
