CommonApp's One and Done Policy


Common App have a One and Done Policy, where you submit certain documents only one time for a student. This is because the Common App does not allow different versions of certain documents to be sent to different universities. 

The documents from the One and Done Policy are as follows:

  • Fee waivers
  • School Report (including the School Profile and Transcripts that are attached)
  • Counselor Recommendation
  • Teacher Evaluation (i.e., teacher recommendation)
  • Midyear Report
  • Optional Report
  • School Final Report

Teacher recommendations can be sent to an individual university. Please note that these documents are only released to Universities from Common App after the student has submitted their application and paid any fees. 

Note that these documents can only be sent once, and you will not be able to change them after they are sent.
