2021 NACAC List is Now Up

Annual survey by NACAC, released earlier than in past years, reveals colleges are still accepting applicants and are not requiring students to respond to offers by May 1.

I just read through that list, and there are some great schools accepting freshmen that also have housing and financial aid available!

So the initial list is around 240 colleges, give or take. Any idea how this compares to prior years? Just curious.

Didn’t know you could do a banner! I posted this thread last week (the list started at 195 schools), maybe you can pull in the comments on that thread @sybbie719? NACAC list of college openings is out early

@stem2017 This list should get quite large…probably 600 or so schools by mid-May and into June.

600?!? Wow!

In PA I’ve seen several “happy” and “successful” students from Duquesne, Elizabethtown, Juniata, Messiah, Susquehanna, and York College of PA. With Arcadia, make sure the “fit” is right. If so, it works, if not, it doesn’t.

In NY, really surprised to see Syracuse on the list.

Up to 262 schools today. I haven’t been tracking daily changes, but Clemson, U Arizona, UNC Charlotte, and U Oregon are all on the list now (taking frosh and transfers).

Syracuse shows ‘undetermined’ in the Freshman column, which leads me to believe they are not accepting Freshman applications, only Transfer applications. I may be wrong.

Any frosh interested in Syracuse should call and ask. It’s likely there are openings in certain schools. After the deposit date, it should be more clear…but early birds get the worm.

Good point about Syracuse. They also have “No” after “Reply Date After May 1” so I would hop on it if I were interested in them.

Newbie here, what does this mean? I don’t really understand.

The colleges on this list are still accepting applications for freshman, transfers or both, for Fall 2021.
