The Coalition for College

The Coalition for College: Access, Affordability and Success is an organization comprised of approximately 130 colleges. Some of these schools accept the Common Application or other application but all accept the Coalition Application.


For colleges to use the Coalition Application, they must meet the following criteria:

  • Be open to students of different cultural, socio-economic, and geographic backgrounds

  • Have low or no-debt financial aid, meet full demonstrated need, or offer in-state tuition

  • Have high graduation rates (for low-income and under-represented students as well as overall)

The application platform works in a similar manner to the Common App - a single application which can suffice for multiple schools with possible supplemental, school-specific essays.
