The Common Application and Docufide Partner to Make Applying to College Easier for Students and their Counselors

 Los Angeles, CA –The Common Application, the 35-year old not-for-profit organization that revolutionized the college admission process, and Docufide, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of high school and postsecondary e-transcript services, today announced an important partnership. Effective immediately, several thousand secondary schools under contract with Docufide may now electronically deliver their transcripts to any of the nearly 400 Common App member colleges and universities nationwide.
 
High schools will be able to use the simple and familiar Docufide workflow to request and upload transcripts for any of their students applying to Common Application colleges. Docufide will then deliver an electronic transcript to the Common App Online system, where it will link to the Secondary School Report form and be forwarded on together to the college.
 
The Common App and Docufide have a shared commitment to provide participating colleges and the nation’s high schools and their students with electronic student record delivery services that are easy to use and highly secure. We are delighted and proud that The Common App organization has chosen to partner with Docufide to allow us to add all the approximately 400 Common Application member colleges to our growing list of electronic destinations,” stated John Reese, Docufide’s CEO. 
 
“Working together, Docufide and the Common Application are transforming the admissions process for every party involved,” added Rob Killion, Executive Director of the Common Application. “The electronic submission of applications, transcripts, and school forms reduces paper consumption, printing costs, postage fees, and human error – saving each high school and college hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars each year.”
