Another Common app account

It would be a good idea to contact the common app account that applied for fall 2021 and delete that, and create a new one for fall 2022? Is that a problem as the CAID will be different?

Hey @sahinkhan!

While you can certainly re-create a common app account with a new CAID, you can also rollover your account from year to year. If your academic profile has not changed very much since 2021, it may not make much of a difference to create a new account since much of the information will remain the same. You can also add/edit your current account to include new information. However, if you're just looking to start fresh, there shouldn't be any issues with creating a new account.

I hope this helps!
