Whether you got a late start on the college admissions process, or you weren’t accepted to the colleges to which you applied, there’s still a chance to secure a spot in the class of 2021. NACAC’s annual College Openings Update: Options for Qualified Students survey lists over 500 colleges and universities that have space available for the freshman class entering fall 2017.

Every year, after the May 1 enrollment deadline, the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) surveys member collegesto compile a list of institutions that are still accepting applications for the fall freshman class. This is a great resource for parents, students, and college counselors – especially those who are still in the middle of the college admissions process.

Should You Still Apply?

It’s important to do your research and determine if a college is a good fit before applying. Since it is later in the admissions process, students might not have enough time to thoroughly research and learn about these institutions before applying for admission. This is why it’s important to work with your college admissions counselorwhen applying to schools this late in the process. He or she can help you learn about the schools and whether or not they’re a good fit for your goals.

Below is the list of colleges (as of May 16, 2017) that are still accepting applications for the class of 2021. Check out the full table here for the most up-to-date information on openings at these colleges and universities.
