Students selecting to use "fast-track" applications have one of two choices. The students' counselors can print and mail all supporting documents, just as they would for students using paper versions of the Common Application. Another option is for students who have already created an online Common Application to go ahead and submit an application to the same college online, which automatically allows high schools to transmit required forms. If the student decides to go the mail option, they need to make sure to follow up that all materials have been sent and received. Without an online application submission through Common Application, students will have no way of verifying that materials are still outstanding, unless they call the school directly. Good luck!
