Since 2007, Educational Credit Management Corporation (ECMC) has hosted College Nights in Virginia. Through this program, participating locations provide opportunities for students and families to learn more about planning and paying for college. Each host location provides helpful information as to why college is important, choosing the right college, paying for college, and securing scholarships. NCI is an active participant of this program and hosts an event each year in November. For more information, visit www.collegenights.org.
College Application Week is part of a national initiative designed to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing a college degree or other higher education credential. All participating students are encouraged to submit at least one college application during the week. NCI supports this initiative by providing one-on-one counseling and assistance for students desiring to complete a college or higher education application. Contact Sammy Redd if you would like assistance during this week or any time throughout the year!
Super FAFSA Week (formerly Super Saturday) is a service project offered by the Virginia Association of Financial Aid Administrators (VASFAA) and supported by New College Institute. During this week, individuals seeking funding for postsecondary education can receive free, one-on-one assistance in completing the federal financial aid form, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the form used by colleges, universities, and career-technical schools across the country to determine eligibility for federal financial aid.
