More Than 300 Colleges Still Accepting Applications

May 5, 2016

More than 300 colleges are on the annual College Openings Update being released today by the National Association for College Admission Counseling. This list (which may get close to 350 institutions by the deadline Wednesday night) is of colleges that are still accepting applications for fall 2016. The report is not a comprehensive survey, but a voluntary system for colleges to opt to be included. As a result, NACAC officials say that ups and downs on the total number of colleges on the list should not be read as evidence of any particular trends. With that caveat, last year only 225 colleges were on the list, and the prior year's total was 257.
