NC Residency for Tuition Purposes

Effective February 20, 2017, the current North Carolina Residency Determination process was replaced by the Residency Determination Service (RDS). The Residency Determination Service was established by the State Legislature to serve as the single authority for determining whether a student qualifies as a state resident.

New Student Orientation

Orientation is required for new students, those returning after a year away, and incoming transfer students enrolling with less than 12 credit hours. New Student Orientation includes:

  • on-line pre-orientation where students obtain general information about the college and its services;
  • an intake advising appointment where students have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a Success Coach to discuss career choices, review programs of study, test scores, prerequisites, and first-semester course selections; and
  • on-campus orientation. At orientation, students have an opportunity to meet classmates, receive giveaways, receive support service information, learn success strategies, and receive hands-on training with campus technology.
