Take a year of classes at Wake Tech tuition-free!

Students who graduate from a North Carolina high school this year can attend Wake Tech this fall at little to no cost.

The college is covering the full cost of tuition and fees for 2022 high school graduates classified as North Carolina residents by the Residency Determination Service (RDS) who enroll for the Fall 2022 semester. Eligibility extends to GED earners, those who complete an Adult High School diploma and those who are home-schooled.

Wake Tech’s initiative is a scholarship supplement to the state’s Longleaf Commitment grant, which covers tuition and fees based on family income. The college will provide 2022 graduates a last-dollar scholarship for the 2022-23 school year to bridge the gap and fully pay for tuition and fees not covered by federal Pell grants or the Longleaf Commitment and other state funds. Students will be responsible for textbook costs.
