College Admissions

If you’re wondering if there are any colleges with late application deadlines, you’re in luck! There are lots of colleges that have a deadline in February or later, and many more that keep rolling admissions open until all their spots have been filled.

The full list of colleges with late application deadlines is below. Before diving into the list, let’s consider an important question first: what exactly is considered a “normal” deadline?

 

When Are Most College Deadlines?

As you’ll see below, there’s a lot of variation when it comes to college deadlines. Early deadlines can be in November when you're just a couple months into senior year. Especially late ones, though, go right up until the start of a college semester.

The majority of college deadlines fall in November or January of your senior year. Most regular decision deadlines are in January, typically on January 1 or January 15. You’ll apply right around the new year and hear back about the admissions decision in March or April.

Many schools also offer an early action and/or early decision deadline, for those students who are ready to apply earlier (and ready to hear back earlier, too). These deadlines tend to be November 1 or November 15, and students usually hear back in mid-December.

While these typical deadlines are in November or January, most of the work starts long before. To apply, you need to be ready with letters of recommendation, essays, and your SAT or ACT scores, all of which take months to years of preparation. If you’re not ready with all of these components, you might look for colleges with later application deadlines. What are some other reasons you might be looking to apply later than January?

Since Dumbledore stopped lending out his time-turner after the whole Prisoner of Azkaban debacle, your best option for buying extra time is with a late application deadline.

 

What Students Would Benefit From Late Application Deadlines?

If you’re reading this article, you might have a very specific reason you searched for “colleges with late application deadlines.” Maybe you’d like another opportunity to take the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, or ACT to achieve your target scores. Along similar lines, maybe you’re hoping to bring up your GPA with grades from the first semester of senior year. By applying later, you may be able to include part of senior year on your transcript.  

Another possible reason could be that you’re looking to add some more options to your college list. Maybe you’ve rethought your choices or even received a rejection from an early decision school. By applying to some more schools, you may end up somewhere you didn’t initially expect.

Whether you slacked during “normal” application season or just want to add another option to your plans, you’ll find that there are a bunch of colleges accepting applications in February and later. Below is the list of schools with deadlines after February 1, followed by colleges that may also be a good option because they use rolling admissions.

Fun with rolling (admissions)!

 

Colleges With Rolling Admissions

Unlike the colleges mentioned above, schools with rolling admissions don’t have a set application deadline. Instead, they open a window of time in which they’ll accept applications, often from the fall to the spring.

While this policy gives you more flexibility, it’s definitely not a pass to procrastinate. Spaces at rolling admissions schools can fill up, and often admissions committees give the strongest consideration to students who file their applications early or submit by a “priority deadline.” A good rule of thumb to use when applying to rolling admissions schools is, “The earlier, the better.”

Below are some popular schools that use rolling admissions, but they aren’t the only ones! If you’re interested in the full list of RA colleges, you can find it here.

So there you have it, the full list of schools with late application deadlines or a policy of rolling admissions. Even if you missed some earlier deadlines, you still have a number of options for a fall college enrollment.

 

Final Thoughts…

Whether you’re just starting your college planning or are a senior looking to shoot off some last minute applications, make sure you’re crystal clear on all of a college’s deadlines and requirements. Even though these colleges have deadlines that are later than average, they require you to plan and prep months before, whether you’re asking for a letter of rec, studying for the SAT, or drafting and revising your personal essay.

Furthermore, colleges with rolling admissions may have a priority deadline as early as November. If you’re really serious about a college, then you want to apply early. An added motivation is the knowledge that, in many cases, the sooner you apply, the sooner you’ll hear back about a decision!

If any of the schools above interest you, then you may be able to spread out your work and ease some of the pressure from the typical college application season in November and December. At the same time, don’t leave off your application too long - deadlines have a habit of sneaking up on you before you know it!

 

What’s Next?

At this point, you have a good sense of application deadlines, whether they're early, regular, or later than average. Now you should think about when to plan and prepare all the pieces of your application. This guide helps you schedule your time by detailing your complete college application timeline, from start to finish.

For more on all the steps it takes to apply to college, from choosing your high school classes to hitting "submit," check out this comprehensive guide. You'll learn not just what to prepare, but why each part is significant in the eyes of admissions officers.  

Are you dragging your feet about your application because you're not sure what to do next year? Perhaps taking a gap year to volunteer, work, or figure out your future educational plans is the best option for you! If you're interested, check out our guide to taking a gap year (coming soon)!
