It was a soft roll-out that began this past August. They wanted to make sure the system would work as intended before shouting the news from the rooftops. It seems that all is well and the news is official: The Pennsylvania state schools now have their own common application. This allows students to apply to multiple PA state schools from one spot.

Called the Multi-University Electronic Admissions Application, the online form can be accessed through the PASSHE website (PA State System of Higher Education), found at, or through the websites of the individual universities.

There are 14 colleges that make up the PA state system:
