Are you still looking for a college to attend in the fall? Maybe you did not get your tuition deposit in by May 1 and now the college doesn’t have a spot for you. Or, maybe your plans changed after realizing the college you wanted to attend was not a financial fit or too far away from home. Whatever the reason, there are many wonderful options available still accepting applications for the fall.
The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) recently released their annual College Openings Update: Options for Qualified Students. There are almost 500 colleges currently on the list. Most of the colleges are still accepting freshman and transfer applicants and most will have financial aid and housing available for new students.
The list of colleges still accepting applications is diverse. There are public and private colleges. There are small, medium, and large colleges. The list also has large research institutions, liberal arts colleges, and religious colleges. Some of the big names on the list include The New School (New York), Arizona State University, and University of Oregon. Students still looking for a place to attend in the fall will surely find a college on the list that meets their requirements.
As colleges and universities fill their spaces, they will close their applications. Therefore, if you’re still looking for a place to attend in the fall, you should apply to the institution as soon as possible. In addition, other colleges may join the list as they learn more about their incoming class and find they still have space available.
If you’re still not sure where you will be attending in the fall, you still have options!
