College Application Month

October 2019

Attention Seniors & Parents

Countdown to College is an annual event to support high school seniors in completing three crucial college enrollment steps: residency, FAFSA, and applications. Also, some North Carolina Colleges will wave application fees. No particular fee waiver form is required; all students need to do is apply to college using their CFNC account.

Here's a list of colleges that are participating in CFNC's CAP week!

Here's a college application checklist to help you prepare?
