What if my residency changes after I received my admissions decision?
If you were admitted as a non-resident but have since been reclassified as an NC resident, you will pay in-state tuition and fees as long as your NC residency classification is made 45 days prior to the start of the term. If the reclassification is made after the 45-day cutoff, the NC tuition and fees will be effective your next enrolling term. To ensure the University receives your reclassification, you must click on the “NC Residency Reconsideration or Appeal” link in your ConnectCarolina Student Center.
Students who were denied admission as non-residents and are later reclassified as NC residents will generally not be re-evaluated. However, applicants may choose to appeal their admission decision by following the admissions appeals procedure.
