Tuscola Hosts College Application Day

With college just around the corner for many seniors, Tuscola High School’s counseling center offered students assistance with their applications during the school’s annual College Application Day.

Tuscola’s College Application Day assisted seniors in completing three important college enrollment steps: verifying residency, completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and filling out college applications.

“We’re hoping to see every one of our seniors today to make sure they have post graduation plans,” Julia Plott, Tuscola counselor said. “We’ve been able to provide lots of one-on-one attention and help to seniors.”

Counselors also assisted students with technology, gave out information about scholarships, and discussed career paths with those students planning to enter the workforce directly after graduation.

Representatives from Western Carolina University and Haywood Community College attended the event to answer students’ questions about applications and college life.

All month long, North Carolina has promoted the NC Countdown to College campaign, culminating to College Application Week October 18-22. During that time, many N.C. colleges and universities waived their application fees.
