Colleges Still Accepting ApplicationsHere’s a List of Colleges and Universities With Later Deadlines

January 1 may have passed, but there are still plenty of colleges accepting regular decision applications. For those students who got a late start on the college admissions process, or are second-guessing their current balanced college list, there are a number of colleges and universities with later application deadlines.

When applying to college, it’s important to do thorough research and make sure that the schools on your list are great academic, social, and financial fits, and a balanced mix of reach, target and likely schools. While it’s not ideal to add colleges to your list at the last minute, every situation is different, and sometimes students get a late start or change their minds.

For those who have thoroughly researched a school on this list and worried that the deadline has passed – don’t fret! There’s still time to get your application in. Make sure everything is complete and try to avoid any of these common last minute mistakes.
