Regulations/Residence Status

Regulations concerning the classification of students by residence for purposes of applicable tuition differentials are set forth in detail in A Manual To Assist The Public Higher Education Institutions Of North Carolina In The Matter Of Student Residence Classification For Tuition Purposes which serves as the controlling administrative statement of policy on this subject. Copies of the manual are available on request at the Coastal Carolina Community College Admissions Office.

Students who wish to be classified as in-state residents for tuition purposes may be required to complete the Application for Classification As A Legal Resident (Domiciliary) of North Carolina for Tuition Purposes. Students may also be required to provide other documents that can show additional proof of residence.

In accordance with North Carolina Session Law 2013-360, the College will transition to a statewide Residency Determination Service (RDS) for new and returning students seeking residency determination as part of the admissions application process for terms beginning on or after January 2017.

Copies of Session Law 2013-360 and summary guidelines for implementation of the Residency Determination Services (RDS) are available upon request at the College’s Admissions Office.
