College Advising Corps (CAC)

The College Advising Corps is a nonprofit AmeriCorps program that assists low-income, first-generation college, and underrepresented students from rural North Carolina navigate the process of finding postsecondary programs that are the best academic, financial, and personal fit for them. 

The College Advising Corps at NC State launched in 2014-2015 as the result of a generous gift from the John M. Belk Endowment. The program currently serves 21 high schools across 11 NC counties (Bladen, Duplin, Franklin, Granville, Martin, Moore, Pender, Perquimans, Pitt, Washington, Wayne). 

AmeriCorps College Advisers support students through college exploration, admissions, and financial aid processes. Advising Corps Members meet with students, collaborate with high school teachers and staff, and plan events throughout the year to create and promote a college-going culture within the community.
