Oregon State Tool Helps Students Navigate Common Application

In partnership with the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), Oregon State University has developed a free online tool to help students complete college applications. The AXS Companion provides step-by-step information and videos to guide students through the Common Application, an undergraduate admissions application used by more than 1,000 colleges and universities across the United States, including the Oregon State.

According to the university, the objectives of the AXS Companion are:

  • Increase student access to the common application, especially for underrepresented students;
  • Help students better understand their college enrollment options; and
  • To provide a structured resource to positively impact college applicants nationwide.

The platform was created by Ecampus, the online education arm of the State of Oregon, with content provided by the IECA, including more than 50 modules corresponding to sections of the common application. The ICEA is an international, not-for-profit professional association representing experienced independent educational consultants who provide academic advice to students and families.

“This tool provides critical assistance to underserved and first-generation students navigating the college application process,” Oregon State Provost and Executive Vice President Ed Feser explained in a statement. academic report. “The collaborative development of this tool also demonstrates the State of Oregon’s commitment to providing access to a college education not only to learners in Oregon, but across the country and the world.”
