Chowan Waives Application Fees for All Students During N.C. Countdown to College Initiative
The opportunity comes as a part of the College Foundation of North Carolina’s (CFNC) annual campaign to support college access called NC Countdown to College (formerly known as CFNC College Application Week). Chowan, in addition to 42 other colleges and universities, is offering free applications through the CFNC website.
“College application week is an awesome opportunity for students to get their application fees waived,” shared Dr. Daniel Wilson, Vice President for Enrollment. “At Chowan University, we are allowing both in-state and out-of-state students to apply here for free. What's more exciting is that we have extended the college application week to two weeks.”
While the initiative is North Carolina based, Chowan recognizes that many students attend from the surrounding states and from all over the world, therefore is also extending the opportunity to apply for free to any undergraduate student through October 30th on the university website: chowan.edu/apply.
In 2005 College Application Week began as a pilot program at one high school in North Carolina, growing to 15 schools the next year through the GEAR UP program. After the collaboration with College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) and the Carolinas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (CACRAO) the effort quickly grew to a statewide initiative in 2008. In 2017 the weeklong event expanded to a month-long effort to support North Carolina students with their NC Residency Application, FAFSA, and college applications.
