Safeguard Your Credentials


In the last 24 hours, we've heard from some counselors that their students have received a solicitation email offering FAFSA assistance and directing them to a third-party website that requests their Common Application account information. We want you to know that The Common Application has no affiliation with this website--and more importantly, we want to remind you that you should never give your log in credentials to any third-party company or organization. You should also remember to sign out of your Common App account and close any browser windows when finished with your work, especially when working on a public computer.

If you receive an email from any company that asks you for your log in information, do not respond: that message is being sent without our knowledge or cooperation. And if this happens, you can help other students by letting us know about it. Simply contact our support team at appsupport.commonapp.org.
