If you’re a high school student applying to college, you may be familiar with both the Common Application and Naviance. The Common Application is a platform used by over 900 colleges and universities to streamline the college application process for students. Naviance, on the other hand, is a college and career readiness platform that helps students plan their futures, including college applications. In this article, we will go through the steps to link these two platforms using Markdown language.

## Step 1: Obtain the Common App’s URL

Before you can start linking the Common App and Naviance, you need to obtain the URL of your Common Application. Here’s how:

1. Log in to your Common Application account
2. On the “Dashboard” page, click on the “Account” button on the top right corner of the page
3. Scroll down to the “Application Essay” section and click on “View/Print”
4. Copy the URL that appears in your browser’s address bar

## Step 2: Create a Markdown Link in Naviance

Now that you have the URL for your Common Application, it’s time to create a Markdown link in Naviance. Here’s how:

1. Log in to your Naviance account
2. Click on the “Colleges” tab
3. Find the college you want to link your Common Application to and click on it
4. Click on the “Application Requirements” tab
5. Scroll down to the “Application” section and click on “Add Link”
6. In the pop-up window, type in the name of the link (e.g., Common Application)
7. In the “URL” field, paste the URL you copied earlier
8. Click “Save”

## Step 3: Test the Link

After creating the Markdown link, you should test if it works properly. Here’s how:

1. Go back to the “Application Requirements” tab of your college in Naviance
2. Click on the link you just created (e.g., “Common Application”)
3. The Common Application website should open in a new tab or window. If it does not, check the URL and make sure it is copied correctly.

That’s it! You have successfully linked your Common Application and Naviance using Markdown language. Now, you can easily access your college applications from Naviance, and keep track of your college planning all in one place. Happy college planning!
