SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – It will be easier for students to apply to several Illinois universities soon. The Illinois Board of Higher Education announces that all twelve of the state’s public universities will begin accepting applications this fall using the Common App.

Northern Illinois University, Chicago State University, and the University of Illinois Chicago, currently use the Common App as part of their admissions process. There are three public Illinois universities using the app now and 32 private schools

Gov. Pritzker’s office says that submitting one application for multiple colleges and universities removes a barrier preventing students from enrolling in higher education.
