Re-establishment of Abandoned Domicile Within 12 Months

If an individual was properly classified as a resident for tuition purposes and enrolled at a North Carolina institution of higher education at the time he/she left school or graduated, and if that person subsequently abandons North Carolina domicile and then re-establishes North Carolina domicile within 12 months of abandoning it, he/she may re-enroll at a North Carolina institution of higher education as a resident without having to meet the 12-month durational requirement. An individual may take advantage of this statutory provision only once in a lifetime.
