More than 220 colleges and universities still have openings, aid and housing available to qualified freshman and/or transfer students for the Fall 2015 semester, according to the National Association for College Admission Counseling’s (NACAC’s) annual College Openings Update (formerly the “Space Availability Survey”). The Update can be viewed at: www.nacacnet.org/collegeopenings
Now in its 28th year, the Update is a tool for counselors, parents and teachers as they assist students who have not yet completed the college application and admission process after the May 1 response deadline observed by many colleges. In cases where well-qualified students may not have applied to a range of institutions, or may have been turned down by all schools to which they applied, the Update provides an opportunity to be accepted by competitive institutions, and to obtain financial aid and housing.
Both public and private colleges and universities are listed on the Update.
It will remain on NACAC’s Web site through June 30. Colleges have been asked to modify their listings as the number of openings at their institutions changes.
