Encouraging Your Students to Finish Applications During College Application Week

This week many thousands of students across the state have already submitted applications as part of College Application Week (  Even so, CFNC statistics show that many have started but not yet taken the final step of submitting. Colleges and universities across NC are waiving their application fees just for this week, so students need to submit their applications by Friday at 5:00 pm to take advantage of these waived application fees.

We are now sending emails to these students to encourage them to fully complete their applications, but we also invite you to encourage your students to finish this important step.  As you help your students this week, please keep in mind that you can use the CFNC Professional Center to see who has submitted applications through the site.

REMINDER: Hurricane Florence Effects on College Application Week

A number of NC colleges have extended their admission application fee waivers until November 16th for students in 31 designated counties.  When a student is completing their application on, the system will provide the special fee waiver option based on the county in their permanent/mailing address on the application.  You’ll find the list of designated counties and colleges extending fee waivers at

Thank you for all your collaboration on NC Countdown to College 2018!
