176 Colleges Have Adopted SuperAPP to Receive ALL College Application Materials Electronically

(Boston, MA) April 20, 2010 – ConnectEDU (www.connectedu.net), the Web-based leader in empowering students to manage their education and launch their career, today announced that 35 additional colleges have chosen to receive a full electronic package of a student’s college application materials via SuperAPP™. This takes the total number of colleges subscribing to an electronic feed of a student’s full college application package – transcripts, letters of recommendation, school profiles, application essays, etc. – through SuperAPP to 176 colleges.

“We are excited about the continued market adoption of SuperAPP both at the high school and college levels,” added Craig Powell, Chief Executive Officer, ConnectEDU. “Since we announced SuperAPP 182 days ago, we have signed on 176 college partners to receive a student’s full application package electronically. In addition, several major urban school districts - Baltimore Public Schools, Detroit Public Schools and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District - have chosen to use SuperApp for all of their students to manage and track the college application process. Since students can use SuperAPP to apply to over 1,500 colleges from a single application form, high schools are rapidly adopting SuperAPP as the standard for facilitating their students’ college applications. As more schools seek to streamline the application process, we anticipate more high school districts and colleges will choose SuperAPP.”

SuperAPP is a comprehensive solution that allows students to complete the entire college application process, including official transcripts, letters of recommendation, college essays, high school profile and the application, from a single, secure location. An application processing solution, as opposed to an application format, SuperAPP uses and supports all of the most popular application formats including: The Common Application®, Universal College Application™, and unique applications for 1,500 colleges nationwide. SuperAPP streamlines the application process for college admissions officers by delivering a full electronic student application to colleges in a single integrated data feed in the colleges’ preferred format.

SuperAPP is offered as a free service for students. It dramatically improves the college application process for families by allowing students to apply to multiple colleges from a single location. It also helps high school guidance counselors by allowing them to track students’ applications from a single, secure location.
