It is a website and you not need to go through it (some schools are not on the commonapp) but I feel like it makes it easier to apply to college, especially if you are applying to multiple schools.

All colleges have applications. There are over 4300 colleges with 4 year degrees in the US and they all have college applications. One popular way to apply is through the Common App

https://www.commonapp.org

Its a portal with about 950 college partners. You can apply to multiple schools through this 1 portal.

Good luck.

You're probably thinking of the Common App. It essentially consolidates the abundance of information about college applications and essays into one site. There are a growing number of colleges and universities working with the Common App, but not all schools will be on there. From what I've heard, most students find it to be a valuable resource, so I would suggest looking into it. Best of luck!
