Member institutions may also require a "Common App Supplement," and ask additional questions, with only two restrictions:
  1. supplement questions may not re-ask questions already asked on the Common Application (except identifying information like name, address, date of birth, etc.), and
  2. supplement questions may not ask questions that violate the NACAC Statement of Principles and Good Practice (such as "rank order of your college choices")
