BestNotes has the functionality of a Common Application. This is an application that is used so that families only need to fill out one application that can be shared and transferred to multiple programs. Companies who want to use the Common Application must use the BestNotes Application. No modification can be done to this application. Questions can be hidden, but know that if a question is hidden for your company and you receive an application where that particular question is not hidden, you will not see the response when you receive the application. Please contact BestNotes Support at (208) 543-6646. to setup the common application for your company. Below are instructions on how to transfer applications from one company to another.
