Glitches Plague Website for Students Applying Early for College

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- With deadlines for early college applications rapidly approaching, many high school seniors who are using a popular website to submit their information are freaking out.

Common Application is used by hundreds of colleges and universities, and processes more than three million applications a year. It's supposed to simplify the process, but prospective college students have been running into glitches with the website.

Some common issues with the site include essays disappearing, logins not working and screens going blank. As a result, many schools have extended their deadlines for early applications.

In a statement, Common Application said it is "committed to resolving these issues promptly."
