Class of 2015 Announcements
It is recommended that seniors in the Class of 2015 should plan to apply for college admission prior to November 1. Some colleges/universities have institutional funds/scholarships(based on merit & grades) that are tied to an early application for admission. Even if you have excellent grades and apply for admission after Nov. 1, you would not be eligible for those funds. Early application doesn't guarantee you will be awarded a scholarship, but it puts you in the pool of eligible candidates. Be sure to check deadlines on individual college websites for deadlines for scholarships at each school. Need-based financial aid begins with the completion of the FAFSA (www.FAFSA.gov) after January 1, 2015, and is tied to the family's 2014 income and taxes.
Attention Seniors in Class of 2015: If you have a strong GPA and plan to start your post-high school career at a NC community college, please see your counselor about the C-Step (Carolina Student Transfer Excellence Program) at UNC Chapel Hill. Students from low-to-moderate income families who complete their Associate Degree (2 year degree) at a community college with a 3.0 college GPA may have automatic acceptance to UNC-CH to finish a Bachelor Degree program if the student BEGINS the community college process as a participant in C-Step. Students will receive support and financial aid through participating in this program. Ashley counselors have more information for you. Deadline to apply for C-Step is October 1, 2014.
