The Common App for transfer Cycle Dates and Fees

Cycle Dates

Review the table below for the cycle open and close dates for the Common App for transfer applications. 

Cycle Open Date Close Date

2020-2021 July 31, 2020 July 30, 2021

In some instances, the individual program's deadline may differ from the application's cycle dates. To view a program's deadline date, click Add Program and review the information under Deadline. You can submit your application up until 11:59 PM in your local time zone on the deadline date.

Fees

Fees vary by program. Specific fee amounts are available on the Submit Application page. 

Fee Waivers

See Common App Fee Waivers in the Personal Information section of the application for more details. 

Coupon Codes

Some programs provide coupons that offset application fees. If you received a coupon code from your program, use the information below to apply it to your payment.

Note that coupon codes cannot be redeemed after an application has been submitted. Additionally, if you miss a program deadline due to waiting for a coupon code, you must request a deadline extension from your program, not Common App for transfer.

Using a Coupon Code

You can apply your coupon code(s) when you are ready to submit your application.

  1. Click the Submit Application tab at the top of the application.
  2. Click Submit, or to submit to more than one program, click Submit All.
  3. On the payment page, enter the coupon code(s) you received from the program(s) under Apply Coupon.
  4. Click the Apply Coupon button.
  5. Complete the rest of the payment details pages.

Note the following:

  • When a coupon code equals the total transaction amount, you don’t need to enter additional payment information.
  • When a coupon code is less than the total transaction amount, you'll need to enter payment information for the additional balance. 
  • When a coupon code is more than the total transaction amount, you don’t need to enter additional payment information. However, you'll forfeit the remaining balance offered by the coupon code, as Common App for transfer will not issue credits or carry remaining balances forward.
  • Coupon codes cannot be applied to chargeback fees.

If you used a coupon code(s) when submitting to a program(s), the code(s) will be listed under Payment History.
