How can I delete an essay or old application?

You cannot delete an essay or application. If you need to make changes to your submitted essay or application, please contact the university to which you applied in order to make those changes.

We use the following guidelines for deleting applications:

Submitted applications are subject to deletion after the application semester has begun. For example, if you submitted an application for Spring 2016 and it is currently Jan to May of 2016 (the Spring 2016 semester), your application will be deleted from our system. As long as the submitted application remains in our system, it can be copied for submission to a different university.

Saved Applications

Applications that are saved but not submitted are subject to deletion after 120 days.
