Notre Dame Online Application and Supplementary Forms
The Notre Dame Online Application for First Year admission
The University of Notre Dame is an exclusive member of the Common Application. We encourage you to apply online by visiting the Common Application web site at www.commonapp.org. It’s quick, easy, and secure. However, if you prefer to print a hardcopy, complete it by hand, then mail it in, you can find copies of all the necessary forms in PDF format here.
Please use the same method to submit both your Common Application and Notre Dame Supplement—either both electronically or both via postal mail, do not mix and match. If the application is submitted electronically, portions of the application like letters of recommendation and transcripts can still be mailed in to complete your application successfully. We also recommend making a copy of your completed application to keep for your files.
You should submit the on-line version of the Common Application’s First Year Application and the Notre Dame Supplement to the Common Application no later than November 1 for Early Action or December 31 for Regular Action. We will not review your application documents (e.g. transcripts, teacher evaluations, etc.) until we receive these two documents and the required fee (or the signed fee waiver). Your required application fee can be paid by credit card (our preferred method of payment) or check and should be made payable to the University of Notre Dame. If you pay by check, write your full name on the check so we can credit it correctly toward your application. Do not send cash.
The Notre Dame Supplement to the Common Application
You must submit the Notre Dame Supplement at the same time as the Common Application’s First Year Application; this form is available to registered users of Common App Online and must be completed online. After logging in to Common App Online, select University of Notre Dame from the “My Colleges” list. The online Notre Dame Supplement to the Common Application will then be available in your “Supplements” tab.
