Students

The Coalition provides a single platform of online tools to assist in the experience of applying to college. With the Coalition platform, you can find out more about Coalition schools, share your locker with counselors, teachers, and mentors, and submit applications with ease. The Coalition is designed to be convenient, straightforward, and easy-to-use. We hope that the Coalition’s online tools will allow you to apply to colleges with confidence and feel assured that you have made the most of your college options.

In addition, the Coalition institutions are committed to broadening access and increasing affordability of higher education for students of all backgrounds. Students and their families have access to free support from Admissions and Financial Aid personnel at individual institutions. We want you to have the confidence that once admitted to any Coalition school, you can afford to attend.

Coalition members believe that students should be empowered at every step in the application process—including when they choose which application best suits their needs. Some Coalition members will exclusively use the Coalition App, while many other Coalition members will accept applications from a number of sources. Admissions offices do not provide preferential treatment to applicants based on which of their approved technological platforms they decide to use to create and submit their application.
