Happy New Year from everyone at Fayetteville Technical Community College!
Even though it may seem early to begin thinking about fall, when it comes to college admissions, it is never too early to prepare. We at FTCC are currently accepting admissions applications for 2015 Fall Semester and encourage everyone to apply for financial aid as soon as 2014 income tax information is complete. Even though it may seem early, now is the perfect time to begin the fall admissions process.
The most important admissions advice I would like to offer: “DO NOT WAIT.” Visit our website www.faytechcc.edu and click on the “Get Started” link located on the home page. This links directly with the free College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) application used by FTCC and many colleges. Once the application is complete, two things happen: (1) an email is sent directly to the email address used in the application, and (2) we at FTCC mail a letter to the physical/mailing address used in the CFNC application.
The email outlines admissions steps and provides links to forms used for many purposes, such as to request a transcript from high school or other colleges, financial aid and the assessment and placement office. The email also provides a link to connect with an FTCC Admissions Counselor and to our Veteran’s Services and military websites, health counselor and the Spring Lake campus and Ft. Bragg Center.
The letter provides log-in and password setup information for student email and WebAdvisor accounts. All FTCC student applicants receive a student email account and a WebAdvisor account, even before they are registered for classes. The email and WebAdvisor accounts are important because FTCC supports “green” initiatives and communicates with students via student email after the first hard-copy letter is sent. FTCC’s WebAdvisor is an excellent tool for applicants and students in managing financial aid, registering for classes, contacting an advisor, viewing grades, requesting transcripts and setting up a payment plan (for students who pay tuition and other expenses out of pocket).
Even in today’s high-tech world, FTCC recognizes that face-to-face assistance remains important, and we are proud to offer this one-on-one, personal interaction. We encourage you to visit our beautiful campuses located in Fayetteville and Spring Lake and FTCC’s Fort Bragg Center located at the Bragg Training and Education Center. FTCC Student Services is currently located within the General Classroom Building (GCB) at 2817 Fort Bragg Road at the Fayetteville campus while building renovations are underway at the Tony Rand Student Center. Representatives are also available to assist at both the Spring Lake campus and Fort Bragg. I invite you to visit with us at the GCB for assistance with the CFNC application, to take the placement test, and to learn how to log in to your FTCC student email and WebAdvisor. Admissions representatives located at all three campus locations can assist with financial aid applications. And FTCC’s admissions counselors offer help with making career choices and registration for that very important first semester.
Please begin the Fall Semester 2015 admissions process today, and thank you for making Fayetteville Technical Community College your school of choice!
