Colleges & Universities Waive Application Fee During October

Posted on 10/15/2021

College Application Week: October 18-22


College Application Week, part of CFNC's Countdown to College, is October 18-22, 2021! During College Application Week, many North Carolina colleges and universities waive application fees.


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.


NC Countdown to College's initiative is to increase the number of high school seniors who pursue postsecondary education by assisting them with the college admissions process (residency, FAFSA, and applications) and ensuring that each participating student submits at least one admissions application.
