At College Foundation Inc., we strive to keep our employees and organization safe. Due to COVID-19, we have transitioned to remote working. We understand that this is an unsettling time. We still want to be a resource to North Carolinians for all questions about education, so our call centers are still operating! Call us at 866-866-2362 Mon-Thurs from 8am-6pm or Friday from 8am-5pm for any questions regarding saving, planning, applying, and paying for college!

If you have been affected in any way by the coronavirus outbreak there are options available to help with your loans. You may qualify for a deferment based on your circumstances, such as unemployment or economic hardship. You may also request a 3-month forbearance on your loans. The President has mentioned relief options for federally owned student loans over last several weeks. Loans held or serviced by College Foundation, Inc. are not federally owned. The options available for your loans with CFI are mentioned above. If this should change, we will keep you updated here. Our call center counselors are trained to help you understand the options available.

It’s never too early—or too late—to save for your student’s college education

The NC 529® Plan gives you a tax-advantaged, straightforward way to start putting money aside for your child’s education right now. With easy online or paper enrollment, you can start saving with as little as $25. Make future contributions regularly or periodically—your choice. Friends and family can even contribute too!
