Colleges That Still Want You

Here’s some great news for those of you high school seniors who–for whatever reason–still have need to apply (and be accepted by) a college. The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) has issued its Space Availability Survey Results 2009.

According to the NACAC Web site, you can:

Search by state for openings at NACAC-member colleges and universities. Then click on the “Contact Info” link if you would like more information from the college/university about how to apply.

Colleges and Universities: Participation in the survey is limited to NACAC-member Principal Representatives. If you would like to add your college to the listing or update your current listing, please click on the link below.  You will be prompted to log-in to the site.
