The Coalition Application Colleges for 2016-17

Ivy Divider

coalition application collegesWhen the Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success first announced its presence to the world in September of 2015, it was a consortium of 80 colleges, which then ballooned to more than 90, but then some of those schools decided to hold off on using the new application platform this year. Are you confused yet? We are. No shame. It’s been more than a little complicated to figure out which schools will actually accept the coalition this year and which, like the University of Maryland, will require it. Luckily, the platform is finally open and signing up grants access to a list of all the schools using the Coalition for the 2016-17 application cycle. So, we signed up and scoped it out. Here are all 76 schools that will be using the Coalition this year. You’re welcome.
