Which Colleges Are Still Accepting Applications in 2024?

An outer view of a building at Georgia State University.
The list of colleges with application deadlines in April, May, June, July, or August is not exactly a who’s who of top institutions.

Previously Published on March 19, 2023:

If the 2023-2024 college admissions cycle didn’t turn out for you as you had hoped and you’ve failed to earn admission to any university to which you applied, know that some schools are still accepting applications for the 2024-2025 academic year.

Are Ivy League Colleges Still Accepting Applications?

While many colleges still accept applications, Ivy League schools do not accept applications for first-year admission after their early January deadlines. In fact, no highly selective university — universities that rank among the top 50 national universities or top 25 liberal arts colleges in the 2023 US News & World Report ranking accepts applications after its Regular Decision application deadline, which typically falls in early January.

Colleges Still Accepting Applications for First-Year Admission

While the below list of over 400 schools still accepting applications for fall 2024 enrollment is relatively slim, and the schools are not considered selective in their admissions criteria, attending one of these schools and preparing transfer applications remains an option. Additionally, there are over 1,100 universities with rolling admissions policies, though there are no selective universities on this list either.

So which schools have April, May, June, July, August, or rolling application deadlines for fall 2023 enrollment? Here goes:

A Path Forward for College Applicants Who Struck Out

While we know this list of schools isn’t exactly abounding in brand-name institutions, if you’re a student hoping to transfer to a selective university and you struck out in the admissions process out of high school, attending a school on this list might be your best option.

It sure beats hanging out at the beach for a year or traveling abroad if you hope to have different transfer admissions results. After all, it often scares admissions officers when students are a year outside of a high school or college curriculum. So consider swallowing your pride and looking deeply at some of the schools on this list — even if you’ve never heard of most of the institutions.
