Why can't I start an application for a college?

Only colleges with currently open applications have a live Start Application option. If the Start Application button is grayed out, that means the college has not yet opened their application for the next application cycle. Many colleges open their applications in early August but check back regularly to see when the colleges you intend to apply to open their applications. 


See this page for a full list of colleges planning to open applications on the Coalition site this year:


Key Concept

Always use the college search and your College List as your definitive source for whether a school is or is not currently accepting applications.
