STEP 1: Submit All Parts of the Common Application

The Common Application is a multi-part process that includes submission of the Common Application, the Pepperdine Questions, and Pepperdine Writing Supplement. All parts must be submitted through the Common Application Website. Be sure to review your Common App Dashboard to ensure that all parts have been submitted successfully.

Important: You will receive a final confirmation e-mail from the Seaver College Office of Admission within 48 hours of our office receiving your Common Application submission. Please save and print this final confirmation. This final confirmation ensures successful completion of Step 1.

STEP 2: Submit Additional Required Materials

  • Include your Pepperdine Campus-Wide ID (CWID) or Common Application ID on all documents you submit. This will assist in the accurate and timely processing of your application file.
  • All additional materials must be submitted or postmarked by the application deadline.
  • We strongly recommend that you submit as many materials in electronic format as possible as this will expedite processing of your application file.

STEP 3: Monitor Your Application and To-Do Lists

Monitor your application and to-do lists to verify that items have been received by the Admission Office. There will be a delay between submission of an item and reflection in your to-do list. Do not send multiple copies of the same item. This will cause delay of processing your file.

Helpful Tips!

  • No paper applications accepted. Do not send printed copies of your Common Application or Pepperdine essay. These will not be accepted.
  • We recommend that you complete the application process early, as technical difficulties may not be considered as a valid reason for a late application. It is your responsibility to resolve technical difficulties directly with The Common Application.
  • We will utilize the e-mail address you provide on your application for correspondence (including notification of your admission decision). It is your responsibility to ensure that this e-mail address is valid, to notify us of any changes to your address, to check your e-mail regularly, and to verify that your account will accept e-mail from Pepperdine University.
  • Retain all confirmation Web pages, e-mails, and certified mail receipts for your records.
  • Include your Pepperdine Campus-Wide ID (CWID) or Common Application ID on all documents you submit. This will assist in the accurate and timely processing of your application file.
  • Utilize your full legal name for the application and all additional materials you submit. Submitting documents with alternative versions of your name will delay or impede the processing of your application file.
  • It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that all required materials for the admission application file are received by the Office of Admission by the deadline in order to be considered by the Admission Committee.
