Help when you need it
Text

Things are pretty crazy now, right? We're here to help.

You probably have a lot of questions about what you need to do next. That's why we've partnered with AdmitHub and College Advising Corps to give students timely advice on navigating the college admissions process. 

Because of your relationship with Common App, over the next couple of months, you'll get free, personalized tips sent straight to your phone from Oli, AdmitHub's friendly chatbot, who will give you advice on things like: 

  • Finding coronavirus (COVID-19) support resources;
  • Completing your free application for federal student aid (FAFSA);
  • Applying for scholarships;
  • Deciding where to go to college;

And, if you ever need to chat with a real, live person, Oli will help connect you to a trained college adviser from College Advising Corps, a national non-profit focused on increasing college opportunity for low-income and first-generation students. 

Rest assured that you can opt-out at any time from this free service and we will never use your data in a way that is not consistent with our privacy policy found here.
