High School Counselors and Community-Based Organizations

A Partnership for Success

We recognize high school counselors and community-based organizations are instrumental in supporting students through the college admissions process. At NC State, we both value this commitment to your student’s success and welcome the opportunity to work alongside you. Our goal is to ensure that you have the resources you need to guide your students through this process.
