RDS to Start Determining Your Residency Status

Coming Soon: Residency Determination Service (RDS) will assume residency determination responsibility for all new and returning students. Your residency status should not need updating unless you missed two or more consecutive major semesters (fall and spring) or if your residency has changed since you last registered. If you believe your residency status is incorrect, please contact the Admissions office before the RDS implementation. You can also update the residency on a future term once RDS goes live through the new RDS system at www.NCresidency.orgMore information can be found at http://www.cpcc.edu/admissions/admissions/residency or by contacting the Admissions Office at any campus.
