Virginia College Application Week Is Happening Now


This week is College Application Week in Virginia. Seniors interested in applying to participating Virginia colleges will have their application fees waived as long as the application process is completed by 5:00 pm on Friday, November 17.

According to Lisa Nichting, Menchville’s college and career coordinator, “all seniors will have the opportunity to get help with the process during their English classes.”  Nichting will be providing step by step instructions, and will be helping with any accompanying paper-work students need in Computer Lab 10 throughout the week.

Application fees for a single college can be as much as $45.00, so student’s planning to apply to more than one school can save quite a bit of money by taking advantage of this opportunity.

The following schools are participating in the program: Apprentice School, Averett University, Bluefield College, Bridgewater College, Christendom College, College of William and Mary, Eastern Mennonite University, Emory&Henry College, Ferrum College, George Mason University, Hampden-Sydney College, Hollins University, James Madison University, Jefferson College of Health Science, Liberty University, Longwood University, Lynchburg College, Mary Baldwin University, Marymount University, Norfolk Sate University, Old Dominion University, Redford University, Randolph College, Randolph Macon College, Regent University, Richard Bland College, Roanoke College, Shenandoah University, Southern Virginia University, Sweet Briar College, Thomas Nelson Community College, Tidewater Community College, University of Mary Washington, University of Richmond, University of Va-College Wise, University of Virginia, Virginia Military Institute, Virginia Union University, Virginia Wesleyan College, Virginia State University.
