Hello! After you've completed your FERPA form, submitting it through the Common App is pretty straightforward. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to submit your FERPA form:

1. Start by logging into your Common App account.

2. Find the "My Colleges" section in the menu on the left side of the screen and click on it.

3. In the "My Colleges" section, navigate to the "Recommenders and FERPA" tab for any college on your list. It doesn't matter which college you select; your FERPA release should apply to all schools you're applying to via the Common App.

4. When you're on the "Recommenders and FERPA" tab, find the section titled "FERPA Release Authorization."

5. Your completed FERPA form should appear there. Click the "Release Authorization" button to submit the FERPA form to your schools.

6. If you want, you can check your submission by going into the "Recommenders and FERPA" tab for your other colleges. The FERPA status should now show that it's been submitted.

And that's it! You have now submitted your FERPA form through the Common App. Good luck with your college applications!
