Many high school seniors were left disappointed this year after one of the toughest college admissions seasons on record. But the “Space Availability Study” from the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) shows students who were rejected from their top-choice schools, may still be in luck.

The list contains more than 280 schools that told NACAC they still have limited room in this fall’s freshman class.

The schools, which range from state schools to small, private colleges as well as universities abroad include, among others, University of Arizona, Hofstra University in New York, St. John’s College in Maryland, Oregon State, Texas A&M at Commerce, Xavier University in Ohio and Wheaton College in Massachusetts.

The list includes the contact information for the admissions departments at each institution and the NACAC says students should contact the university directly for information on how-to apply.
