Residency Determination System (RDS)

There is an online service to determine North Carolina residency for tuition purposes and eligibility for state grants now available to all NC colleges and universities. An early release of the NC Residency Determination Service (RDS) was introduced to a subset of students at the NC Independent Colleges and Universities in December 2016, and is now required for all students at UNC institutions and for all NC community colleges.  RDS is managed by the State Education Assitance Authority (SEAA), which is responsible for all appeals of residency determinations made through the RDS.

RDS uses an “online interview” for residency determination.  Students can access RDS through the student’s CFNC account, through all CFNC admissions applications, through campus admissions applications, or directly through the Residency Determination Service (RDS) website at

The RDS site provides guidance on state law residency requirements, RDS policies, and using the RDS online interview.  The RDS site will answer most questions. However, if additional information is needed, please call (844) 319-3640 or email
