Creating multiple Common App accounts: Is it allowed?

Just a quick question - does the Common App system let you create more than one account? I made one earlier this year but might have forgotten the login, and I don't want to get in any trouble for having two accounts.

I understand your concern about potentially creating multiple Common App accounts. Let me reassure you, having more than one account is against the Common App's terms of service and could lead to complications with your application process. If you're having trouble accessing your existing account, it's best to use the 'Forgot Password' feature on the Common App website, which will allow you to reset your password. Also, if you have used an email that you no longer have access to, there's a process to recover your account by contacting the Common App support team directly. They are quite responsive and will guide you through reclaiming your original account to avoid any risk of having duplicate accounts. It's worth taking the time to regain access to your original account instead of starting anew, as any data or documents you've previously entered will be retained. Remember, maintaining a single account will ensure a smoother and more straightforward application process. If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to reach out; I'm here to help you through this step and any others you might need guidance on.
