Cappex Application Ranks #2 in Second Year of Free Application

The Cappex Application reached the coveted second place among application platforms in its second year of operation. The Cappex Application is a free, standardized and easy-to-use online application for undergraduate admission, which is accepted by more than 125 participating schools.

About half of all undergraduate-bound high school seniors rely on for admissions and financial aid information, advice and tools.

Alex Stepien, CEO of Cappex, said, “The addition of an admissions application to Cappex lets students complete the entire match and application process on a single platform. We think this will be a game-changer in simplifying the decision process for students and families.” The Cappex Application not only streamlines the admissions process, but also is easier for students to use.

  • The Cappex Application is 100% free for all students
  • Students can prefill the Cappex Application with information from their Cappex user profiles
  • The responsive user interface intelligently adapts to all devices used to access the application
  • There is a smooth transition from search to application, with links from participating schools
  • Students can log in with a single sign-on, instead of needing to memorize another password
  • The Cappex Application is saved automatically after each application question

After a soft launch last year, the Cappex Application has quickly taken second place among online application platforms, ahead of the Coalition Application and the Universal College Application. More schools are accepting the Cappex Application because Cappex is a trusted partner to schools, counselors and consumers.
