Colleges Extend Application Deadlines After Hurricane Sandy


Hurricane Sandy

Applying to college is stressful enough, but for some students it took a back seat in the wake of the most devastating storm the East Coast has seen in recent history.

November 1st is the cutoff date for many colleges and universities across the country for Early Action or Early Decision applications. But thanks to Hurricane Sandy, the date for many schools has now been extended five days until November 6th due to power outages, lost internet, and delayed postal service for East Coast schools and students alike.

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) has an updated list with around 200 institutions across the U.S. that have extended the deadline for students to file applications, as well as for SAT/ACT scores and letters of recommendation to arrive.

The list additionally provides contact information for college admissions offices so that students may call or email to verify if their application has been fully submitted, or to request an extension if the situation warrants one.
