If you haven't been on top of things lately or have been rejected/waitlisted by the universities on your college shortlist, don't panic! We've got a list of 20 US universities that have late deadlines (April 1st or later).
A university with a late deadline is NOT the same as one that has rolling admissions. Rolling admissions means university takes students until it has accepted the number of students it wants. If admissions staff find enough students to accept before the deadline, then the incoming class is full and additional students are only accepted in rare instances. Basically, with rolling admissions, you have a better chance of getting accepted if you apply as close to when the application OPENS (becomes available early in the year) not close to the deadline. The universities we've listed below have true late deadlines, so you pretty much have the same chances as the other applicants.
We have only provided universities with deadlines up to and including July 1st. Many UAE students forget that after they are accepted, they have to wait for their student visa paper work to come from the university and then apply for a student. This process can take up to 3 months! Around July 1st is the last, last, last date when you can apply for university and still get your student visa in time to walk on to campus in September (or late August).
Add a couple of the universities below to your shortlist if you're unsure about your acceptance to universities you've already applied to or if you're running behind in the application process.
Be sure to double check the admissions deadline for any university to which you are applying on that university's website. Some universities may have a special "International Priority Date" or "International Student Deadline" that is earlier for the deadline for other incoming freshmen. And don't forget...a rolling deadline isn't the same as a late deadline. NOW GET STARTED!
