Every year at about this time I get calls and email from parents of high school seniors who just decided to get serious about applying to college. They ask if it is too late to apply. Fortunately the answer is that you can still apply to some colleges. Colleges still accepting applications include colleges that have late and some rolling admissions deadlines as well as community colleges.
Not only can students still apply to colleges but they can apply to wonderful colleges that are still accepting applications such as the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia which has high academic standards and very reasonable tuition. Other great Virginia colleges still accepting applications include Bridgewater, Mary Baldwin, Lynchburg College and Roanoke College.
Additional colleges where late applicants can still apply include:
Florida Southern University, Lakeland, Fl.
William Woods University, Fulton, Mo.
University of Findlay, Findlay, Oh.
Hope College, Holland, Mi.
Drake University, Des Moines, Ia.
University of Dayton, Dayton, Oh.
Students should apply very soon. Most of these colleges are enrolling on a space available basis at this time and some will close out their application season within the next week.
