Spots Available for Students at More Than 400 Colleges


Traditional admission deadlines have passed, but more than 400 colleges and universities still have openings, financial aid, and housing available to qualified freshman and/or transfer students.

NACAC’s annual College Openings Update — posted this morning — includes both public and private schools. The list will remain online through June 30, serving as an important resource for students looking to expand their admission options, said NACAC CEO Joyce Smith.

In some cases, well-qualified students may not have applied to a range of institutions, or may have been turned down by all schools they applied to.

“Students and families should know that admission is an ongoing process for many institutions,” Smith said. “Some colleges will continue to have openings available even after the May 1 national response deadline.”

Colleges have been asked to modify their listings as the number of openings at their institution changes.
