Applying to private/independent colleges and universities:

Private/independent  colleges and universities establish their own application deadlines and the admissions application used. 

Many use the Common Application which is a single online college application form used by over 900 colleges and universities. Instead of filling out the same general information—like your address, GPA, and extracurriculars— a dozen times, you only have to do it once.

Learn what you need to do to apply by checking the individual private/independent college/university you are interested in attending.
