(AmericanProsperity.com) – In a typical year, colleges set May 1 as a deadline to accept admissions. However, thanks to COVID-19, this is not a normal year. According to the National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC), a mix of 600 public and private colleges and universities have pushed their admission deadlines well into the summer.

While colleges are still accepting admissions applications through the summer, applicants shouldn’t wait. Schools are making decisions quickly, and students could get left out if they wait too long to apply. In some instances, schools are making decisions in as little as 48 hours. In a more traditional environment, it can take months for applicants to learn if they have been accepted or not.
From the perspective of schools, enrollments have been slow as parents and students weigh the pros of cons in a COVID-19 world. Many are planning on smaller class sizes than they wanted. While not optimal for colleges, it can be perfect for students who thrive in small classrooms.
