Is the Personal Essay required?

Each college that you apply to can either require a response or leave it as an optional writing prompt for you. Once you’ve added schools to your My Colleges list, navigate to the Personal Essay section in the Writing Screen to see which schools require the essay and which schools leave it as an optional writing prompt.



Even if a college does NOT require the Personal Essay, you may opt to submit it to that college.



You are allowed unlimited edits to the essay after your first application submission.
