Goucher College joins Universal College Application

See also

Towson's Goucher College has become the latest college to join the Universal College Application (UCA), a small but feisty competitor to the Common Application.

UCA membership is now up to forty-one institutions. A few weeks ago it was nearly a quarter smaller, as both small and large colleges alike - from Cornell University to Trinity College in Connecticut - have joined up in recent days as a way to mitigate the real and perceived damage of depending too heavily on a Common Application that has been burdened this admissions season from reviews calling it everything from too cumbersome to navigate to downright impossible to use without encountering functionality issues. Goucher is the third Baltimore area college to join. The others are Johns Hopkins and Notre Dame of Maryland University.

"Goucher is pleased to partner with Universal College Application in order to better serve prospective students and our college counseling colleagues.” said Michael J. O'Leary, Vice President for Enrollment Management at Goucher College.

"The Goucher admissions staff was prompt and thorough during the setup process and the Universal College Application team looks forward to working with them throughout a successful application year.” said Joshua J. Reiter, Ed.D., President and Founder of ApplicationsOnline, operators of the UCA.

The Common Application, which is a vendor providing an online application portal to over 500 colleges, only adds new colleges to its membership once each year.
