Residency Determination Service: Graduate Students

Are you a graduate (doctoral, masters, certificate) student seeking to establish North Carolina residency for tuition purposes? In compliance with state law effective May 14, 2018, the University of North Carolina system now requires graduate students to request a residency classification from the new Residency Determination Service (RDS). RDS is the entity responsible for all new and re-classifications of residency in North Carolina. Any graduate student who is seeking an initial determination or residency re-classification will need to complete the new RDS online interview. Students will answer a series of questions through the RDS online interview to determine residency classification for tuition purposes. For additional questions about the process of residency classification, please visit www.NCresidency.org or contact Dean Campbell at cdcampbe@ncat.edu or 336-285-2373.

The easy-to-use toolbar makes documents, files and web pages more accessible. Read & Write is a big confidence booster for anyone who needs a little support with their reading and writing at school or in the workplace. Its friendly literacy features help English Language Learners, as well as people with learning difficulties or requiring dyslexia tools. From hearing emails or documents read out loud to text prediction, picture dictionaries and summary highlighters, Read & Write makes lots of everyday literacy tasks simpler, quicker and more accurate.
