Adding letters of recommendation post-Common App submission?

Just submitted my Common App but realized I might need another rec letter. Is it possible to add another recommender after I’ve already hit submit, or am I out of luck here?

I understand you're concerned about your letters of recommendation after submitting your Common App, and I'm here to help. The good news is, yes, it is possible to add a recommender even after you've submitted your application. You'll need to log back into your Common App account and go to the 'Recommenders and FERPA' section for the school to which you've applied. From there, you can send an invitation to another recommender. However, be sure to check with the specific college's admission office policy to confirm they accept additional materials post-submission. Some schools may have a deadline or cap on the number of recommendations they'll consider. It's also a good practice to notify your school counselor or the admissions department of the college about this update to your application, so they can look out for the additional letter. Best of luck!
