College hopefuls: it's time to fill out important paperwork

NORTH CAROLINA (WECT) - Less than half of high school seniors in our state have completed their FAFSAs (Federal Application For Student Aid).

April Query with the College Foundation of North Carolina, said the issue is not the students, rather, it's their parents.

She urged parents to sit down with their children and fill out the form, which gives applicants access to money designed to help ease the financial burden of students going to a college or university.

CFNC helps students and their parents plan, apply and pay for college. The organization can also help parents and students with questions about FAFSA.
