STEP 1 | COMPLETE YOUR RESIDENCY DETERMINATION
First, complete your North Carolina Residency Determination. This is required before submitting an application for admissions to Carteret CC and establishes whether you’ll pay in-state or out-of-state tuition. Once completed, you will be assigned a Residency Certification Number (RCN). Save this number! You’ll need it for the Carteret CC admission application.
Please note, there are some exceptions for in-state tuition such as military officers and dependents stationed in NC. Carteret CC requires documentation for these exceptions to be made. Requests for exceptions can be made by submitting a Waiver for In-State Tuition form.
If you have already applied and/or are a current student at Carteret CC and have not missed more than 1 year of enrollment, you do not need to complete RDS or the application. You may skip to Step 3.
STEP 2 | COMPLETE YOUR ADMISSIONS APPLICATION
Now you’re ready to complete the official admission application!
Things to keep in mind:
STEP 3 | SUBMIT A HEALTH SCIENCES INTEREST FORM
Complete the online Health Sciences Interest Form and select which health science program you would like to be considered for admission. Students interested in multiple health science programs must submit an interest form per program they wish to be considered.
After submitting the Health Science Interest Form, students will be contacted by an advisor with instructions on how to complete the program’s Admission Checklist.
STEP 4 | SUBMIT TRANSCRIPTS (HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE)
You’re almost there! Now, we just need your official transcript(s). Contact all schools you have attended and request they send your official high school, GED, high school equivalency, and/or college transcripts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
STEP 5 | APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID & SCHOLARSHIPS
Things to keep in mind:

STEP 6 | DETERMINE COURSE PLACEMENT
Carteret Community College uses high school GPA or GED test scores to determine placement. Students with GED scores older than 2014 will be placed in transition courses unless the student chooses to take the placement test. A student can take the placement test in order to achieve higher placement in English in Math if they are not satisfied with how their high school GPA or GED scores placed them.
