Common Application Workshops

The Common Application is a web based application that is used by over 500 local and out of state colleges and universities.

USC, Pepperdine, and LMU all use the Common Application.

This lab time will allow you to work on your Common Application(s), UC & CSU application(s) and bring specific questions to a counselor.  Please bring copies of transcripts from all colleges attended.  Personal statements/essays will not be read during this time, however, you are encouraged to see an SMC counselor to have him/her read your essay and provide feedback.

Limited computers will be available, therefore if you have a laptop we strongly encourage you to bring it.​

For more information on applying to private colleges using the Common Application, please refer to the workshops offered through the Transfer Center:​
