Next Step Overview

If you are a high school junior or parent of a junior, here are three ways you can participate in Next Step:

  1. You can use the Junior Next Step Form to let your high school know what you plan to do after high school and what assistance you might need.
  2. You can use the Junior Next Step Form to connect with North Carolina colleges. If you’re interested, simply check the option to share your contact information with colleges that are part of CFNC.org.
  3. If you are considering a community college or a four-year college, students and parents can also use the Junior Next Step Form to enroll in the Next Step Online Program. You’ll have exclusive access to a set of self-paced online activities to help you take six important steps ahead of your senior year. You’ll be guided through the steps with interactive videos and action items, along with special content for parents. You’ll also receive messages (text or email) with tips and reminders. Enroll now and you can complete the program at your own pace anytime between March 1 and May 31, 2021.
