Colleges with Late Application Deadlines

While the majority of college application deadlines fall somewhere between November 1 and January 1 of your senior year, there are many good colleges that accept applications throughout the spring of your senior year and even during the summer after your graduation from high school.

Many excellent colleges and universities accept applications in February and later

Below is a list of colleges that have application deadlines after February 1 followed by a list of colleges that might also be a good option for you because they accept applications on a rolling basis instead of using a single admission deadline. Because colleges and universities sometimes change the date they accept applications at the last minute, if you choose to apply to any of the colleges listed below, check with each school to make sure the listed deadline is the correct deadline.
