Applying to College

5th year Students should be filling out college applications starting in September of their 5th year. Students need to meet the fall deadlines at colleges in order to be considered for scholarships offered at that school (usually in October or November - check colleges' admissions websites for deadlines.)
 
Here are the things that you will need to submit in order to apply to 4-year colleges and universities:
 
The Application: CFNC is a great place to start to find all applications for NC schools 
The Application Fee: See Mrs. Wicker if you think you might qualify for a fee waiver
High School Transcript: Send your high school transcript to NC schools from CFNC's Transcript Manager . Also, let Mrs. Wicker know where you are applying and if you would like for her to mail a hard copy.
College Transcript: Go to the Bailey Building to get your College Transcript sent to the schools where you are applying. (Not all schools want this; call the admissions office and ask, or just send it anyway just in case.) 
Letters of Recommendation: Ask now! 2-3 Teachers, bosses, community members who know you well (not all schools want these). Be sure to give them a copy of your resume when you ask for a letter of recommendation (and if you need help with a resume, talk to Mr. Hutchman).
SAT and/or ACT Test Scores: See the link to the left for more info. These must be sent through the students College Board (SAT) or ACT Student account online.
Essay: This is part of the application. Not all schools require an essay.
