Residency | FAFSA | Applications

NC Countdown to College (C2C) supports college access every October. C2C activities help high school seniors learn more about taking three important college enrollment steps: residency, applying for financial aid, and college applications. Many North Carolina colleges and universities participate in C2C by waiving application fees during College Application Week - a great way to save on the cost of going to college!

NC Countdown to College will take place during the month of October of 2023 and College Application Week (when many NC colleges have free applications) will be Oct 16-20.
