    College counselor Jerome A. Cole, MA discusses how to determine which colleges and universities accept the common application.

    Speaker: Which colleges and universities accept the common application?

    Jerome Cole: There are, I think currently a little bit over 300 schools that accept the common application. Every year, I have seen the number go up. So, you know, it's over 300 this year; you're seeing lots and lots of conversation in higher education from different colleges and university, talking about adopting and so the number currently is over 300. I anticipate that number to continue to grow and grow. What you want to do as a student is to contact a college or university to your interest and you'll go through their website and determine if in fact they do accept the common application; but the numbers are growing.
