Stanly Community College will partner with GloryBeans CoffeeHouse to host Coffee with a College Counselor 5-7 p.m. Oct. 19 134 W. Main St. in downtown Albemarle.

This event is focused on helping students and parents work through the college application process. SCC representatives will be on-hand to provide FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) assistance and help for those applying to any North Carolina institution, including SCC.

Free coffee and pastries will be offered as students and parents receive one-on-one assistance with any of their college application-related questions.

Coffee with a College Counselor is free to all Stanly County residents and takes place during College Application Week (Oct. 17-21) when many colleges and universities across North Carolina waive their application fees.

FAFSA allows students to apply for federal and state grants (free money for college), federal work-study, and federal student loans. In addition, the FAFSA is often required as part of many scholarship applications.

Residency Determination Service (RDS) allows students to apply for in-state residency and state grants.
