Completing the Common Application

The Common Application is a web based application that is used by over 450 local and out of state colleges and universities.

USC, Pepperdine, and LMU all use the Common Application.

This lab time will allow you to work on your Common Application(s), update your UC & CSU application(s) and bring specific questions to a counselor.  Please bring copies of transcripts from all colleges attended.  Personal statements/essays will not be read during this time, however, you are encouraged to see an SMC counselor to have him/her read your essay and provide feedback.

Limited computers will be available, therefore if you have a laptop we strongly encourage you to bring it.

NOTE: Some CSU campuses are still accepting Fall 2013 applications.  For specific information visit
