Common Application

Common Application for Students

  1. First, you will need to create an account at and note your Common App ID. You will need it to make sure your transcript gets to the right place.

  2. Use the School Forms section of the Common App Online to invite your counselor to be a recommender. Doing this will trigger an email message to your counselor providing instructions on how to submit school forms online. Confirm with your counselor that he or she intends to submit school forms online.

  3. Log into your Docufide account and click on the Common App tab.

  4. Enter your Common App ID.

  5. Verify that the information is correct: your name and your counselor’s name.

  6. If your counselor has accepted your invitation, will submit your school forms online, AND has started your School Form, you will be able to request that your transcript be sent to the Common Application.

  7. Click the Save & Continue button to move on (or Save & Add Another for additional destinations).

  8. Your transcript will be sent directly to the Common App Online system where it will be matched by your counselor with your school forms and submitted on your behalf.

  9. Once you have submitted your transcript to the Common Application, your transcript is ready for submission to ALL of your Common App colleges. You do not need to submit one for each college.
