All scholarship information and available applications are available on Naviance. You can log into Naviance using your full student email and email password. If you have any questions please visit your class house.

North Carolina A&T College Updates

ANY student that is applying to North Carolina A & T University and are having trouble with applying on line. I did speak with the Admissions Director and she will handle the fee waiver but we need to ensure that your student submit a COMPLETE application packet with TRANSCRIPTS, ACT SCORES, LETTER OF INTENT, ETC.

PLEASE EMAIL ME DIRECTLY @ so that I can communicate the names of those students who are seriously applying.


Attention, Attention….To those parents with graduating seniors…We just received word that the following colleges and universities in the NORTH CAROLINA SYSTEM have waived their application fees during College Application Week Nov. 2-6.

Here are the following universities:
*North Carolina A & T University
*Winston-Salem State University
*North Carolina Central University
*Fayetteville State University and
*Elizabeth City University

Each one is a great institution and tuition is not hard on the pockets …but they all have their pros and cons so make sure you (really your student) do your research about the school, degrees offered, financial assistance and area…..the first 3 of course…I’m going to push heavily…..just my opinion. Fayetteville State University class of 1965 just donated over $165,000.00 in scholarships just FYI

Any questions or need a connection…please let us know.
Thank you!
