Preparing for College & Career

Naviance is the primary tool for our students to access college and career information.  Naviance is accessed for FREE under Clever in the student's IAM account.  

College Foundation of North Carolina - An excellent FREE resource for college and career planning.  Many students apply to community college or in-state university through the CFNC website.  

Residency Determination Service - All students seeking in-state tuition at the college and university level MUST complete Residency Determination (RDS) before completing their in-state college applications.  This needs to be done within 15 months of college admissions (no sooner than the Summer before Senior year).  This applies to 2-year community colleges, such as A-B Tech as well as four-year state universities.  This link will lead you to the online interview necessary to complete Residency Determination.  If you already have a CFNC account, use the same log-in for RDS.  ***NOTE:  This step requires both student AND parent information!***
