New online application system saves time and makes it easier for students from around the globe to apply to Universidad del Este.

Students applying to undergraduate programs at UNE after August 1, 2018, will have the ability to do so through The Common Application, an 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, UNE 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.

UNE is pleased to join more than 800 universities in the US and worldwide who accept the Common Application. In addition to providing a single, online application and 24/7/365 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, advisors, 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 & CEO of The Common Application. “Through membership with The Common Application, UNE 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.”

Students applying to associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs can create a Common App account at any time, and their account will roll over from year to year. Beginning this year, Common App members will also begin using the newly introduced Common App for transfer, a separate application designed exclusively to meet the needs of transfer and adult student populations.
