42 Great College Values Still Accepting Students for Fall 2016

Although it's late in the college application process, your son or daughter still has a chance of getting admitted to a quality school.

But for students who didn't get into their top schools -- or didn't get as much financial aid as they had hoped -- there's good news: Hundreds of colleges are still accepting applications from high school seniors and transfer students for the fall semester. And 42 of the schools still accepting students also appear on Kiplinger's 2016 Best College Values list for their blend of strong academics and affordability.
