    College counselor Jerome A. Cole, MA explains the common application.

    Speaker: What is the common application?

    Jerome Cole: The common application is a college application. It was created to have this one uniform document that would be accepted by multiple colleges. It's a document that's very, very common; I hate to be repetitive here, but it is used by quite a few schools and is used by lots and lots of students and it allows you to apply to multiple schools using that one application.
