North Carolina Resident for Tuition Purposes

By default, all applicants are initially classified as non-resident of North Carolina for tuition purposes. If you claim to be a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes in the summer visitor online application, but your status is classified as undetermined, a residency application will be provided in your admission decision packet sent to you from the Summer School office. The completed residency application must be returned to Summer School by the deadline below to provide us with information needed to evaluate your claim as a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes.

Deadlines apply and are strictly enforced. Deadlines for Summer 2016 are:

Maymester/First Session              May 24, 2016

Second Session                                July 1, 2016

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.
