North Carolina Resident for Tuition Purposes

***GRADUATE STUDENTS ONLY***

By default, all applicants are initially classified as non-resident of North Carolina for tuition purposes. You must have been domiciled in North Carolina for a minimum of twelve consecutive months before the first day of classes in order to be eligible for consideration as a resident for tuition purposes.

If you claim to be a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes, you must fill out the residency questions within your application.   If more information is needed, additional forms will be included in your decision letter.  Any additional applications must be returned to Summer School by the deadlines below. Deadlines are strictly enforced. There are no exceptions.

Deadlines for Summer 2017 are:

Maymester/First Session     May 31, 2017

Second Session                  July 10, 2017

Failure to meet these deadlines and/or failure to submit the residency application will result in the applicant being classified and charged as a non-resident of North Carolina for tuition purposes.

You must  have been domiciled in North Carolina for a minimum of twelve consecutive months before the first day of classes to be eligible for consideration as a resident for tuition purposes. To prove that you are domiciled in North Carolina, you must show that you are physically present in the state with the demonstrated intent to make North Carolina your permanent home of indefinite duration.
