NC Countdown to College

North Carolina’s annual campaign to support college access is during the month of October and is named NC Countdown to College. Activities during the month support high school seniors in completing three important college enrollment steps: residency, FAFSA, and applications. College Application Week will take place October 19 – 23rd, 2020. During this week, volunteers at hundreds of NC high schools help students submit online applications for admission and many NC colleges and universities waive their application fees.
