Creating a Recommender Account

To complete the online recommendation this season, you must first be invited by a student (on or after Aug. 1, 2014). You will receive an email with a link to the site.  Click the link "Access the Common Application online system." 

You will be taken to an Account Creation page that asks you to create your password.  Please click on the  ‘Create Account’ button at the bottom of the page, and your account is created for this season. 

*Please note, once you create your account, you will be taken to a login screen.  Make sure you click on the Recommender tab before logging in.

If you already have an account for this application season and you have forgotten your password, you may request a new one by going to www.commonapp.org, clicking the Recommender tab, and then clicking "Forgot Your Password?"

Any accounts you had before August 1, 2014 are no longer active.

Schools who use Naviance must provide the school forms through the Naviance College Planner interface.
