Colleges still taking applications for Fall 2011

If you still haven’t applied to college for the Fall of 2011, there’s still time, but it’s running out quickly. We were reminded of this when we noticed that Columbia International University (CIU), one of the more homeschool-friendly colleges, has a deadline of August 1 posted. If you’re still thinking about applying for the fall, be sure to keep an eye on the deadlines of the schools you’re considering. You may also still be able to obtain some grant and scholarship money, as funds are sometimes freed up when students choose a different school.
