As the summer comes to a close and the new school year begins, we wanted to share some important news. We are pleased to announce that starting with the 2017-2018 application cycle, Fordham University will be using one application platform–the Common Application! We are hoping that this single application option makes applying to Fordham easier for both you and your students. Here are some of the additional advantages we hope to see as a result of this change:
- Single upload process for documents. If your school uses Naviance, we know that this will help reduce confusion that has recently resulted from multiple submission platforms.
- Easier access for students. No separate forms, essays or requirements are needed!
- The Common Application has a new Google Drive Integration that should help students save and upload their work.
We know that many of you have shared with us that a single application is a strong counselor preference. We assure you that your feedback was critical in helping us make this decision.
Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions about our application process.
