How is the Common App different for International Applicants?

The Common Application is essentially the same for domestic and international students with small differences, such as the questions about citizenship and residency, application fees, and payment. In addition, schools may choose to add additional questions required of international applicants on their My Colleges section.

Your citizenship determines whether or not you are considered an international applicant in the Common Application. 

Application Fees
Schools decide if international applicants pay the same fee as domestic applicants, or if they must pay a different fee amount.
If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you pay the domestic application fee (if a fee is required).
If you are NOT a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you pay the international application fee (if a fee is required).

Payment
If your permanent address is in the United States, CashNet, a Blackboard company, will process your application payment (if a fee is required).
If your permanent address is OUTSIDE the United States, FlyWire will process your application payment (if a fee is required).
