NC Residency Determination Information
North Carolina is now using a central residency determination site to establish NC residency for in state tuition purposes and state grant eligibility. It is recommended to complete this residency determination to get your Residency Certification Number (RCN) prior to completing college applications. NC colleges will vary about when they request this information: some will ask on the application, some later in the admission process. The link below has a powerpoint about the Residency Determination Service. This site works with a student's College Foundation North Carolina (CFNC) login. Please do not create duplicate logins.
