How do I claim North Carolina residency when returning to Carolina?

All students who are claiming North Carolina residency are required to submit a residency application with the North Carolina Residency Determination Service (RDS). If you’ve already applied and we have your Residency Certification Number, it will automatically appear in your survey. If not, you’ll be asked to provide it. We’ll use your RCN to be sure we have your current residency classification.
