college decision day

May 1 is traditionally "Decision Day," the deadline for college-bound seniors to choose a school and send in a deposit. If you have not completed the admission process, however, that doesn't mean you have to sit out college until next year. NACAC's College Openings Update can help you find schools still accepting applications—and with the help of our college rankings, you can find one that's a great fit for you, too.

Each year after decision day, the National Association of College Admission Counseling publishes a listing of colleges and universities that are still accepting applications for the fall. The list is available, and continually updated, until July 1st. 

Below you'll find 88 colleges currently accepting applications for this fall that made our The Best 384 Colleges, 2019 Edition, along with links to their admission data, acceptance rate, ranking lists, and more!
