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.
What is traditionally called College Application Week has been extended to two weeks this year: October 19 – 30th, 2020. During these weeks, many NC colleges and universities wave their applications fees.
If you’re an out-of-state, transfer or grad student, some schools enjoy the opportunity to expand their fee waivers to you. However, those choices are made by the individual institutions and NC Countdown to College or the HBCU Campaign Fund does not have information on which schools might expand their waivers to other groups. Contact the specific institutions’ admissions office.
