Year 13 Presentation
Ms. Beaudry, Wake Tech Liaison, presented this material during a PTSA meeting on May 8th.
This is preliminary information regarding the new Year 13 option that will be available beginning in the 2019-2020 school year. Information is subject to change as we work to develop appropriate procedures for this process.
Exploring College Options Seminar
Exploring College Options is a special recruitment program sponsored by the undergraduate admissions offices of five of the country's leading universities: Duke University, Georgetown University, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Stanford University. During the spring or fall of each year, the Exploring College Options group will visit all 50 states, Puerto Rico, USVI and the District of Columbia.
At each event, representatives from the five universities will conduct brief slide presentations about their institution and answer your questions about the sometimes-mystifying world of college admissions.
You will learn what distinguishes one fine university from another, what competitive colleges look for in the selection process, and what you can do to enhance your college application.

College APplication Links
In mid-November, we celebrated College Foundation of North Carolina's (CFNC)" Free College Application Week", during which many colleges/universities across the state waived their application fees.
Here are some of the resources we shared that you should utilize as you finish up all of your college applications:
Are you still undecided for your plans in the Fall? Consider the CFNC College Redirection Pool (CRP). To take advantage of this option, students register on the CRP page at CFNC.org, where they enter information about themselves including GPA, test scores, and extracurricular activities. Their profile is then available to NC two-year and four-year colleges.
