Highlighting Your Achievements

Showcase your academic and extracurricular honors in your college app. Both the Common and Coalition Apps provide dedicated sections for your achievements.

Academic vs. Extracurricular

Know where to shine: Academic honors go in the Honors section, while extracurricular achievements light up the Activities section. Both play a crucial role in your application's success.

Value of Non-Academic Awards

Excelling outside the classroom matters! Non-academic awards demonstrate your passion, skills, and leadership, making you a well-rounded candidate for college

Selecting Your Top Honors

With limited space, prioritize your most prestigious awards. National or international recognition? Those go to the top of your list, showcasing your standout accomplishments

Making Every Word Count

Describe each honor concisely within the 100-character limit. Choose impactful phrases and figures to highlight the breadth and significance of your achievements
