For thousands of high school seniors and their families, May 1 marks the close of the college application process. The date, which is also known as National Decision Day, is the deadline by which most colleges require prospective students to have made their decision and submit a deposit for the upcoming fall semester. But students who didn't get into their top schools or didn't receive as much financial aid as they needed to be able to attend still have options: Hundreds of colleges are still accepting applications from high school seniors and transfer students for the fall 2017 semester, and 58 of those schools offer a blend of academic quality and affordability that earns them spots on Kiplinger's 2017 list of Best College Values.
