Students applying to Olivet College for 2018-2019 will have the ability to do so through The Common Application, a powerful online college application platform that serves and supports more than three million applicants, teachers and counselors across the United States and around the world every year.
By becoming a Common App member, Olivet College will gain exposure to students who may not have otherwise considered the institution while making the application, including fee waiver, process more efficient. One-third of the more than one million Common App applicants are the first in their family to pursue a college degree.
“Olivet College is very excited to become a Common Application member institution for the first time,” said Lisa Lehman, vice president for admissions. “Students nationwide – and even globally – can utilize the Common App to add Olivet College to their list, making it easier for them to apply and ensuring we won’t miss great students simply because we are not a member of the Common App.
“Students interested in Olivet College can also apply via our own Olivet College application admission on our website at olivetcollege.edu/apply. We are looking forward to helping more students find their fit as Comets and the positive impact adding the Common App will have on our incoming 2019 freshmen and beyond.”
In addition to providing a single, online application and support for all students applying to member colleges and universities, the Common App connects applicants to financial aid and scholarship tools, digital portfolios, virtual mentors, a Virtual Counselor and a library of resources for counselors, advisers and recommenders working with students to complete their college applications that includes Spanish language translations.
“The diversity of our membership is one of our greatest strengths,” said Jenny Rickard, president and CEO of The Common Application. “Through membership with The Common Application, Olivet College has demonstrated a shared commitment to pursuing access, equity and integrity in the college admission process. Thanks to our members, all students, regardless of their background, have the opportunity to easily apply to the college or university that will help them achieve their best future.”
