Even though most college deadlines have passed, according to the National Association of College Admissions Counselors (NACAC), nearly 300 colleges have so far reported that they still have room for incoming freshman. Many colleges are still trying to fill their classes and also tend to lose students in the final weeks before classes start. When that happens it is referred to as “Summer Melt”.

Many people who are considering enrolling in college this year feel like they have waited to long so they may as well wait until the Spring semester, but that would be a big mistake. When you put off enrolling in school the odds go against you astronomically that you will enroll the following semester. Most people move on with other things such as work and family. You owe it to yourself to at least make the effort and see if you can still get registered for Fall classes at the school of your choosing. Online courses are a great alternative as well. Just remember, it’s still not to late to enroll! But the clock is ticking and you need to act now.
