North Carolina's annual campaign to support college access
We’re excited that you will be participating in this year’s NC Countdown to College (C2C). Activities during the month support high school seniors in completing three important college enrollment steps: (1) Filing the FAFSA, (2) Using RDS to get in-state tuition and state grants, and (3) Submitting college applications.
College Application Week will run October 16th-20th. Volunteers at hundreds of NC high schools will help students submit online admission applications, and many colleges will waive their application fees on CFNC.org.
Please be on the lookout for virtual site coordinator training coming in August. This training will be useful for new and seasoned site coordinators and everyone is encouraged to attend. In addition, we will hold our third annual Educator Professionals training, this year taking it from one week in September to the entire month, offering two programs per week throughout the month. Please save the date and more information will be out soon. We encourage participating high schools and other sites to include activities not only for seniors applying to college, but for all students, including freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who can be preparing for their career and higher education journeys.
