Two HBCUs Join the Common Application Membership Association

The Common Application membership association was established in 1975 by 15 private colleges that wished to provide a common, standardized first-year application form for use at any member institution. Today, 490 colleges and universities now accept the common application for admission. This includes many of the nation’s highest-ranked colleges and universities, including all eight Ivy League colleges.

Only seven of the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities are members of the common application association. This year Lincoln University of Pennsylvania and Dillard University in New Orleans have joined the group. Previous members are Morehouse College, Spelman College, Fisk University, Howard University, and Xavier University of Louisiana.
