How to fill out the application?

Check directly with the institution your student is interested in, as some schools use the Common App, some use their own application, and others use a different standardized application (e.g., Texas state schools use “Apply Texas”). More than 600 schools use the Common Application, so it’s likely that you’ll run into it if your student applies to a number of private schools.

Apply Texas

Texas state schools (University of Texas, Texas A&M, etc.) use the "Apply Texas" application.

Note that different Texas state schools use different versions of Apply Texas. Your student must select which school they're applying to before seeing the application.
