NC Residency for Tuition Purposes

NC Residency for Tuition Purposes – This page is an excellent resource!!!

If you are applying to a Graduate Program and claim to be an NC resident, follow the instructions on the application and complete your residency determination at Once you have received a validated residency decision from RDS, enter the Residency Determination Number (RCN) into your application. If you are ready to submit your application prior to completing your RDS determination or receiving your RCN number, you will have the opportunity to enter it later through your applicant portal. Entering your RCN after submission will not effect your application, but until it is provided, you will be considered an out-of-state applicant.


Tuition & Fees

Tuition and fees remain the same from Fall to Spring.  The Tuition & Fee Rate breakdown chart is in the embedded link. 

If on a graduate appointment (RA, TA, or RA/TA), department fees are not paid until after census day.

Tuition due date is posted on your bill in MyPack Portal.  Here is a Billing Due Date calendar.

NC Residency

Information on the NC Residency process can be found here:

That link is a great resource!!

Current graduate students applying for residency next year: Begin completing your residentiary acts (outlined below in the Basic Requirements of Residency) about a year before you will be applying for residency. You will need to wait until you have lived in North Carolina for 365 days before applying through the RDS system or you will automatically receive a determination of out-of-state. If you do apply too early, you can log back into your RDS account and Request a Reconsideration once you have met the 365 day requirement.

If you have received NC Residency status, there is an important step a lot of students forget about:  Updating your RDS Determination with NCSU!!

Updating your RDS determination with NC State: If your RDS decision or expiration date has changed since you originally provided NC State with your Residency Determination Number (RCN) number, you will need to complete the residency form in your applicant portal, or update it through NC State’s self-service residency page by:

  • logging into MyPack Portal
  • navigating to your Student Homepage
  • clicking on the Personal Information tile
  • selecting ‘Residency Information’ from the left-hand navigation
  • entering your RCN in the corresponding text box, selecting “Save RCN” and then “Request Residency Data”

NOTE: You must have a unity ID to login to access this page.
