One of the changes that was made for the 2017-17 application year was to remove the yes/no requirement for Common App supplements. This was done because of confusion caused by the "hidden" essay questions that often were not considered supplements by the colleges, conditional requirements for supplements and the various types of supplements. To add to the mix, additional supplements will emerge for the Coalition App. As the applications become more convoluted, a yes/no answer for supplements is not always accurate.
To still help with application planning, a note has been added in the Milestones area for colleges that have flagged that a supplement may be required. This will allow you or your students to correctly select the correct milestones for an application plan.
