Spots Still Available for Students at 750 Colleges


Roughly 750 colleges and universities still have openings, financial aid, and housing available to qualified freshmen and/or transfer students for the fall 2020 semester, according to NACAC’s 33rd Annual College Openings Update.

Both public and private colleges and universities are listed in the directory, which will remain on NACAC’s website through July 30. Colleges have been asked to modify their listings as the number of openings at their institution changes.

“Given the extraordinary circumstances of 2020, we hope this resource can help colleges that are still seeking students for fall enrollment to connect with students who haven’t yet found a place to attend,” Joyce E. Smith, NACAC’s CEO, said in a press release.
