Where to find topics for college-specific essays


To see a college-specific essay topic, you must start an application at that college.

In addition to the standard Coalition essay (which individual colleges can decide if they want to include on their application), colleges also have an option of requiring one or more essays based on their own essay topic prompts.


Key Concept

Not all colleges will require essays. To find out what essay(s) a college requires, or to see their college-specific topics, you must start an application at the college.
