The number of colleges still accepting applications for Fall 2017 continues to grow.
More than 500 institutions have openings, financial aid, and housing available to qualified freshmen and/or transfer students, according to NACAC’s College Openings Update.
When survey was first posted on Thursday morning, the list included 414 colleges and universities. Since that time, dozens of additional schools have added their information. The update, which includes public and private institutions located here and abroad, will continue to be modified by colleges and universities through July 30.

Parental expectations that are too high can end up undermining student success in the classroom, research shows.
The findings, published in 2015, are derived from a five-year study of more than 3,500 middle and high school students in Germany.
Researchers examined the results of annual math tests given to students. They also asked parents to list the grades they hoped their children would earn, as well as the grades they thought their children could reasonably obtain.
The study showed that while realistic expectations helped kids perform well, unrealistically high expectations harmed student achievement.
