Listing all institutions on your application

Well, it appears that we have a little over a month until applications for spring admission are due. We just wanted to post a reminder for you when completing the common application.

It is a requirement for you to list EVERY SINGLE institution you have attended on the common application.  That's high school (if you were home-schooled, list it) and each and every college or University you've attended. Do not skip over these sections.  Even if you first went to college ten or twenty years ago, we will need the transcript and we'll need you to write it on your application.  For better or worse, we have access to a database which tells us what colleges/universities you attended, and if you make an omission, we could consider it a violation of our honor code.  I think many students mistakenly skip over this part, but we urge you to move slowly through the application so it doesn't happen to you.
