Residency Information

Your residency classification is what determines if you pay in-state or out-of-state tuition.

All students are required to have a valid Residency Determination from the North Carolina Residency Determination Service to enroll. Once completed, you will be assigned a Residency Certification Number (RCN).

We recommend you have access to the following information before you start your determination:

    1. Driver’s License or Non-Driver ID
    2. Tax Return Information
    3. Vehicle License & Registration Information
    4. Social Security Number
    5. Voter Registration (if applicable)
    6. Other Documents (Requested by RDS)
    7. Immigration Documents (if applicable)

If you are under the age of 25, you will most likely need to complete residency with a parent or legal guardian.

Need assistance completing residency application? Contact the Residency Determination Service at 844-319-3640 or rdsinfo@ncresidency.org .

Need access to a computer, scanner, and fax machine? Visit CFCC’s Enrollment Center at the downtown campus.

If your residency tuition classification changes and you need CFCC to update your student record, please email residency@cfcc.edu. Remember to include your RCN number in any correspondence.

If you are classified as an out-of-state student and feel this is incorrect, please contact RDS right away and begin the recommended steps to have your residency re-evaluated. RDS will typically ask you to complete a re-consideration and/or an appeal.

If RDS requests additional documentation from you, please pay close attention to deadlines and follow up with RDS if you have any questions or concerns.

Remember, if your status changes, please notify CFCC right away at residency@cfcc.edu . Please include your name and RCN number.

If you are currently enrolled or previously attended a North Carolina college or university, please review this information:

If you have a valid residency status that will not expire before the term you wish to enroll begins, you will not need to complete the residency process again. You can use your current/valid residency certification number for CFCC enrollment. If your residency certification will expire before the term you wish to enroll begins, please update your residency status.
