Residency Determination System
The NC Residency Determination System (RDS) is an online service designed to help parents and students determine North Carolina residency. Establishing residency will impact tuition and eligibility for state grants available for use at all NC colleges and universities. The State Education Assistance Authority manages the RDS and is responsible for all appeals related to residency determinations generated by the system.
RDS uses an “online interview” to determine residency. All students at UNC System institutions and NC community colleges are required to complete this online survey. Students can access RDS through their CFNC account, through all CFNC admissions applications, through campus admissions applications, or directly through the RDS website at www.ncresidency.org.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
