If you are planning on applying to the University of Utah, please start your application ASAP. It is a long application since they have moved to the Common App.

What is the Common App? 

“The Common Application (Common App) is a non-profit membership organization representing nearly 900 diverse institutions of higher education.”

This means that if you are applying to other schools outside of Utah, you will not have to fill out so many applications because you will have already filled it out with the Common App. Each school has their own requirements for essays and application fees, but it really does save time.

Remember, to be considered for scholarships to the University of Utah, you must have your application done by November 1st.

We are happy to help you complete the application, but remember, November 1st is the Friday of UCAW and that is the last day to finish your application.
