Mapping Guidelines

The Common App Courses source format is an optional format for institutions that have enabled the self-reported transcript on the Common Application.  Many institutions do not use this source format and instead rely on the PDFs of transcripts for grade information.

This format is used when your institution has enabled the Common Application screen titled "Courses & Grades."  The data is received in an XML data format and is imported to the Courses tab of the person record.

  • Do not alter the mapping for the Slate Common App ID or Common App ID.
  • Do not map application Round information for this file.
