Complete Guide to SlideRoom's Integration with Common App

As we enter the second year of SlideRoom's partnership with The Common Application, we are excited to share several important updates as well as a complete guide for member schools wanting to understand how the integration for the two systems work across multiple touchpoints.

View the complete guide here.

The big announcement at the Common App's conference last week was that all member schools of the Common App can receive the data integration. This was previously limited to Exclusive II members, but is now available for all. SlideRoom's standard pricing remains in effect, but XII schools do receive a waiver of our yearly license fee. Here are a few highlights about the integration:

  • Applicants are given a smooth bridge to transition from Common App into SlideRoom.
  • Data is passed from CommonApp to SlideRoom to ensure everything is reliably connected.
  • Key Common App data is displayed within SlideRoom automatically.
  • The Common App export will include a direct link to an applicant's portfolio in SlideRoom.

Additionally, schools can opt into using Common App's Scheduled Delivery Service (SDS) to import the CommonApp as data and PDF on a nightly basis for a beautiful viewing experience.
