Over 240 Colleges Still Accepting Applications for Fall 2013

The University of Maryland is on NACAC's "Space Available" List
Back by popular demand, the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) annual “Space Availability Survey: Openings for Qualified Students” is now available. And many wonderful colleges and universities throughout the country are continuing to accept applications for fall 2013 enrollment.

According to NACAC, at least 246 schools have space available for qualified freshman and/or transfer students, with many having financial aid and housing to offer.  And there are some great opportunities on the list.

For example, Colorado State University, Drexel University, Eckerd College (FL), High Point University (NC), Stetson University (FL), the University of San Francisco (CA), and Xavier University (OH) are posting that they have space available for this fall.

Locally, Trinity Washington University  and the Corcoran College of Art & Design are still accepting applications from prospective freshman as well as transfer students.

In Maryland, Frostburg State University, St. John’s College, Hood College, Mount Saint Mary’s, Notre Dame University of Maryland, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Stevenson University, and the University of Maryland—College Park indicate they will consider qualified freshman and transfer students.

To the south, Emory & Henry College, Hollins, Lynchburg College, and Mary Baldwin College also show space and resources left for prospective freshmen and transfers in Virginia.

The annual survey asks NACAC member institutions to provide information on the availability of space, financial aid, and housing as of May 1, 2013—after the close of the traditional college admissions season. In its 26th year, the survey is designed as a tool for counselors, parents and teachers as they work with students who have not completed the process for one reason or another.

In addition to the NACAC survey, colleges still accepting applications may be found by searching both the Common Application and Universal College Application (UCA) websites. As of today, the Common App shows 168 members still open to new applicants, and the UCA lists 25 member colleges and universities still accepting first-year and transfer students.

Note that the colleges and universities listed on the NACAC survey are subject to change. And it's entirely possible that more will be included as time goes on. Students must contact institutions directly for up-to-date application information, and be aware that admission will be contingent on each institution’s review of individual candidates.
