You can only print preview your application in its entirety when all questions have been answered and you are ready to submit your application. The Common App is paperless, so you are not able to print and send in a paper copy of your application to colleges. Only admission offices are able to print applications without the preview watermark. This is to ensure that colleges do not receive multiple applications from one student.<br><br>The watermark was added at the request of colleges to prevent students from completing the application online but not applying online. That practice creates unnecessary work for colleges.
