How does your service work?

We now have an integrated web and mobile application. You set up an account and you can access the information on both portals. You can purchase individual colleges, groups of 5 to 10 colleges, or an annual unlimited license. We also have bulk licenses for those who work with groups of students or counselors.
New for the 2023-2024 application cycles is the ability to make lists for your individual clients.

How do I sign up?

You sign up online. Then you can use your account on both our free mobile app and the web. We use Paypal, so you need a Paypal account or to a guest account, which just takes 30 seconds to set up.

How do I get the app?

You go to iTunes or Google Play and download All College Application Essays. Once you download the app, you can log in using the same id and password you created for the web. If you want, you can set up your account on your mobile device.

How will I know if the app is updated?

We update the app every day. We place the updated year at the top of key requirements. For the 2023-2024 cycle, we are putting Fall 2024 when it is updated, and Fall 2023 (with the most recent date checked) for last year’s data.

How do I use the app-website?

It’s easy. Just type in the college name or go down the master list. We have each school for the Common Application, Universal Application, and all major public and private colleges using other applications. Once you type in the name, select the college and you will find all the admissions requirements, including essay prompts, lengths, and submission formats. We also provide fees and test, interview, and recommendation requirements. For public universities, we include info for their honors programs if they require additional essays. We also provide some tips and information about different college types.

How do I share the information?

We have an email function where you can email information. We have a favorite button. Where you can save favorites. We also have a professional license where you can buy our app for your clients. We give industry discounts. For more than 100 licenses, please contact Dr. Joseph (rjoseph@allcollegeessays.org), and she will negotiate directly with you.

What if I find incorrect or missing data?

Oh no. We are mortal, so mistakes do occur. If you find any incorrect or missing data, please email us immediately, and we’ll correct it  within 24 hours. If we are missing colleges, you feel should be on the app, let us know, and we’ll add them within 24 hours. Some colleges have not released all of their honors and scholarship essays, so we let you know when they will be released.

Yes, Dr. Joseph, the founder of the service, is a national expert on college application essays and the college admissions process.
