Undergraduate Students

NEW PROCESS FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS ONLY:

If you are a new, incoming, or current undergraduate student, and you wish to request a residency classification, you will need to submit your application using the new centralized Residency Determination Service (RDS).

As of February 20, 2017, the UNC System has implemented a new centralized process to provide students the opportunity to claim NC residency.

  • To begin the process, visit www.NCresidency.org
  • ALL undergraduate student inquiries about initial determinations, reconsiderations or appeals, should be directed to RDS, the sole authority for undergraduate residency determinations.  You may reach RDS by telephone or email:
