It is ONLY for First year students

So me, as a Transfer student, no wonder I updated my password so many times to figure out why it is not working.

Would be cool if it worked for transfers too...because you know, we are students using the common app too.

Had to keep updating my password to see if it’d work. I’d like to conclude it doesn’t work if you’re a transfer

Awful App

The app is a big waste of time to mess around with because it doesn't let you log in even if you have an account. I've been trying to get onto the app for the past couple weeks because it would be a life saver to help me finish my college applications. The only problem is that the app doesn't recognize my account. I even tried contacting CommonApp's tech department to help me, but after an hour of shooting emails back and forth, I got fed up with it and just gave up because nothing they tried worked and they just kept telling me they don't know what's wrong. I know I'm entering my email and password correctly because I can still log onto the Common App from my phone online, just not the app. Don't bother getting it, because it will just waste your time.

Hi Loyal Gamer,

Our apologies for the miscommunication and the trouble. We have since released an update to remedy this issue. If you upgrade to the newest version, your desktop password should work fine with Common App onTrack as well. If you still have issues, please contact and I'll keep an eye out for any new communications.
