Students may apply to Catawba and Livingstone for free during College Application Week. Admission to Rowan-Cabarrus is always free, but the community college’s staff is available to assist students in exploring careers and completing enrollment, 住院医生实习期, 转移, and financial aid requirements.

“教育 is the best investment anyone can make in their future, and students here in Rowan-County are fortunate to have a choice of three excellent institutions at which to pursue higher education and career paths right here at home,格雷格·埃德兹说, chair of the Rowan County Board of Commissioners and a founding member of the Rowan 教育 Collaborative.

The Rowan 教育 Collaborative, a community initiative to increase local educational attainment and job opportunities, includes Rowan County Commissioners, the Rowan Economic Development Commission, Rowan-Salisbury Schools, 卡托巴语学院, Livingstone College and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. The Collaborative supports local programs including internships and job shadowing, college classes for high school students, and articulation agreements between local educational institutions.

例如, “学习本地”, Grow Local” articulation agreement between 卡托巴语学院 and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College enables Rowan-Cabarrus graduates to 转移 as juniors into more than 50 different programs at Catawba. Intended to support students who want to earn their four-year college degree locally, the program not only offers guarantee of 转移, but provides students with advising and additional support.

The “Streamline to Success” articulation agreement between Livingstone College and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College offers Rowan-Cabarrus graduates who are pursuing careers as teachers guaranteed admission and financial support at Livingstone. Along with free 转移 application and admission to Livingstone, students receive guaranteed financial support based on their grade point average.

During College Application Week, high school students are encouraged to consult with teachers and counselors for college planning resources and assistance. The October campaign enables students across the state to make progress toward achieving their education and career goals, eliminating the cost of college applications as a barrier to enrollment for high school seniors.
