William Woods joins Common App platform to increase access, quality and visibility of the university

Fulton, MO – Applying to William Woods University (WWU) is now more convenient, thanks to a new partnership announced today by WWU President Dr. Jahnae H. Barnett. Beginning today, William Woods is joining The Common Application, or “Common App,” a non-profit organization that produces an undergraduate college admission application that college applicants may use to apply to hundreds of colleges and universities worldwide. Each year, more than 850,000 students use the service to submit more than 3.5 million applications.

“By adding our university to the Common App’s network, prospective students can use the service to apply to our institution, while easily managing all aspects of the process,” said President Barnett. “By becoming a member institution of this innovative program, we will increase the visibility of William Woods across the nation.”

Prospective students who use the Common App are able to explore and apply to as many of the approximately 700 member institutions in the U.S., Canada, China and several European nations as they wish. Applicants enter their information one time and send the completed application to multiple schools. The Common App system also manages applications in one convenient online dashboard, alerting applicants and guidance counselors when important deadlines are approaching and providing progress on each specific college or university application.

“Our new partnership with the Common App is an important investment,” said President Barnett. “We are excited about the potential to increase the number, quality and diversity of our applicants while also introducing prospective students to the excellent degree programs we have here at William Woods.”
