North Carolina’s annual campaign to support college access is during the month of October and is named NC Countdown to College. This is an initiative of the College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC). Activities during the month support high school seniors in completing three important college enrollment steps: residency, FAFSA, and applications. College Application Week will be October 18-22, 2021. Check out the many NC colleges and universities that will waive their application fees.
