CFNC celebrating College Application Week by waiving application fees

Local high school seniors have the chance to apply to different colleges and universities for free, all in part by the North Carolina College Application Week.

Waivers of admission application fees for students with a demonstrated financial need and for whom an application fee would create an undue burden are provided at all of the 36 private colleges and universities as well as all of the 16 University of North Carolina system campuses.

NC College Application Week, promoted through the College Foundation of North Carolina, lasts through November 18th at 5:00 p.m.

This program has a special focus on students who have not previously thought about attending college, and students who would be the first in their family to attend. But all seniors are illegible to participate.

College Application Week has expanded upon its initial efforts in 2005 at one high school, to serving a total of 222,131 students who submitted 702,791 online applications.

During the 2015 College Application Week, 27,304 North Carolina high school seniors submitted 71,469 applications to North Carolina colleges and universities.
