Many colleges still accepting applications

By Valerie Strauss

Scores of colleges and universities in the greater Washington area and around the nation are still accepting applications from students for enrollment this fall even though the traditional admissions seasons is over, according to a new survey of schools.

The annual Space Availability Survey conducted by the nonprofit National Association for College Admissions Counseling shows how many available freshman and transfer openings are available, as well as housing and financial aid.

You might be surprised at how many schools are still accepting applications, public and private, large and small, all over the country.

For example, Trinity Washington University in the District, with fewer than 1,000 students, is on the list. So is the University of Texas at San Antonio, with more than 20,000 students.

Other schools in the greater Washington area with openings are: University of Maryland at Baltimore County (limited openings), the University of Virginia’s College at Wise, Stevenson University in Maryland, Roanoke College in Virginia (limited openings), Mary Baldwin College in Virginia, Hood College in Maryland and the College of Notre Dame of Maryland.

You can check out the full list at Results will be updated over the summer.
