Students interested in attending any of the University of Missouri System’s four schools will soon be able to apply to all of them using the same application.
The University of Missouri System announced Wednesday that it will begin using The Common Application, which allows students to apply to multiple schools using the same application.
More than 850,000 students use the service to submit more than 3.5 million applications, according to the organization’s website.
“Our new partnership with the Common App is an important investment,” UM System President Mun Choi said in the release. “We are excited about the potential to increase the number, quality and diversity of our applicants and introduce prospective students to our excellent degree programs.”
John Fougere, UM System spokesman, said that the system hopes to have the change fully operational by August for prospective students applying for the fall of 2018.
