• Harvard College

• Humboldt State University* *Some colleges, like Humboldt State University, will accommodate students affected by California wildfires, but require that students request a deadline extension.
Note: These are just some of the many colleges that have extended deadlines for students affected by recent natural disasters. If you’re a student impacted by the California wildfires – or any other natural disaster – and are concerned about your ability to apply on time, check out colleges’ websites to see if they’ve listed a policy regarding extensions. If you don’t see anything listed, inquire to see if they are willing to grant exemptions due to your circumstances – many colleges will gladly grant extensions in cases such as this.
