The College Foundation of North Carolina will sponsor, NC Countdown to College this year, October 15 - 19. During NC Countdown to College week, counselors and others at North Carolina high schools will help seniors submit online college applications for admission through the CFNC application hub. Many North Carolina colleges and universities will waive their application fees that week. Additionally in October, CFNC will give extra help to students as they fill out their Free Application for Federal Aid, or FAFSA, to determine eligibility for college aid, and use the Residency Determination Service to determine if they qualify for in-state tuition.
