QuestBridge October 20, 2013 National College Match / After the Application Deadline

Yes, you are free to reuse the essays from your College Match application for the Common App. Please be sure that your response fits the given prompt. However, some schools will require a school-specific supplement that includes an essay, which should not be recycled from your QuestBridge application.

QuestBridge August 28, 2013 National College Match / Submitting Materials

If you are participating in the College Match by ranking colleges, you should not also automatically submit the Common Application to all of the schools you rank. However, if you are selected as a Finalist, you will need to send additional materials to each of the schools you ranked, and some of our partner schools require the Common Application or a supplement as one of these required materials. If that is the case, you will need to submit the Common Application to the schools that require it by the College Match Requirements for Finalists deadline of November 1, 2015. For more information on additional materials required from Finalists for each partner college, please go to the individual college's College Match Requirements for Finalists.

Similarly, if you are participating in Questbridge Regular Decision, you may need to fill out the Common Application if you are applying to any of our partner colleges that require the Common Application in addition to the QuestBridge application. The Common Application as well as all additional materials are due by the individual college's Regular Decision deadline. For more information on the requirements for each partner college, please visit the Regular Decision Requirements.

If you are unable to submit official test scores to all of the colleges you ranked due to financial difficulties, please contact the college admissions offices directly and ask if they will accept test scores submitted in other ways. The colleges will often be accommodating in finding another solution, such as accepting scores sent by your school. You can also talk to your school counselor about the possibility of receiving a fee waiver through College Board or the ACT. QuestBridge unfortunately is not able to offer any fee waivers or financial assistance for sending test scores.
