The Profile section of the Common Application is where you’ll enter all your basic information such as your name, address, and contact information. Make sure that you enter everything correctly and that you use the proper rules of capitalization. Colleges pay attention to all these things. Also, if your contact information is entered incorrectly, colleges will have a hard time getting a hold of you. The demographic section of the application—such as religion and ethnicity—is optional, but, in general, schools like to have this information. If you’re a resident, you’ll have to scan and upload your residency card and if you’re applying for financial aid, you’ll have to enter a social security number, although it’s recommended that you entire it, regardless. Lastly, answer “yes” for the fee waiver if you believe that you qualify.
