A variety of online platforms make it easy for students to apply to multiple schools at once. Students input basic information like name, birthday, high school, etc. They may also upload resumes, essays, and other application components to the platform and then decide to which schools they wish to have their materials transmitted. Some colleges and universities require supplemental materials. The application platforms make it easy for students to understand and manage these requirements all in one place and keep track of deadlines, as well. Examples of widely used application platforms include Common Application, Coalition for College Application, Common Black Application, and Universal College Application. Some states, such as California and Texas, have their own state-wide applications.
