What's the final deadline for the Common App?

Does anyone know the ultimate deadline for submitting the Common App? I know there are different dates for ED/EA and RD, but is there a final cutoff date for all applications? Just want to make sure I don’t miss it.

Greetings! I appreciate your diligence in ensuring you meet all your application deadlines. While the Common Application itself doesn't have a singular final deadline, each college or university sets its own final application deadlines that you need to adhere to. These deadlines can vary significantly from one institution to another.

For example, a lot of colleges have Regular Decision deadlines on January 1st or January 15th, but some may extend as late as February or even March. Moreover, if you’re looking at rolling admissions schools, they might accept applications throughout the spring, or until all spots are filled. It's also worth noting that certain programs within universities, such as honors programs or competitive majors, may have earlier deadlines than the general application.

To avoid missing any deadlines, I highly recommend creating a personalized admissions calendar with all the final deadlines for the schools you're interested in. Keep an eye out for updates on college websites or via emails from the admissions offices, as sometimes deadlines can change. And also factor in time for any possible technical issues or last-minute materials you need to gather. Being proactive will help ensure that you don't miss your chance to submit your application. Best of luck with your college applications!
