Unsubmit Common App forms (SR, CR, MYR, OR) if not yet downloaded by a university

If you’d like to unsubmit a global Common App report form, you can do so on BridgeU. The unsubmit feature on BridgeU allows you to unsubmit Global Common App Reports, including School Report, Counselor Recommendation, School Midyear Report, and School Optional Report.

If none of the universities listed here has already downloaded the report form, you’ll see the unsubmit button showing next to the report form. This is based on the Common App's "One and Done" policy.

You can only unsubmit a global Common App report form if the form has NOT been downloaded by one of the universities.


Please bear in mind that Common App requires the unsubmission in a reversed order. For example, you won’t be able to unsubmit a School Report if the School Midyear Report is still in submitted status. You'll see the SR still showing sent status (green bubble) after hitting the unsubmit button if the SMR is not unsubmitted first.

The unsubmission of Common App global forms need to be in a reversed order.

To solve this, please unsubmit the SMR first and then unsubmit SR.


Once you successfully unsubmit a form, the document bubble of the form will become grey. This means that it's complete, but not sent yet. You'll be able to click into the form to make changes, save it, and then submit it again.
