A Residency Certification Number (RCN) is required to submit a Carteret Community College application for admission. Effective September 11, 2017, Carteret Community College will no longer be allowed to validate residency status for in-state or out-of-state tuition charges or to make changes to residency status.
The North Carolina State Legislature has established the RESIDENCY DETERMINATION SERVICE (RDS) which will serve as the single authority for determining residency for tuition purposes.
To begin the residency process, enter the RESIDENCY DETERMINATION SERVICE (RDS) and select COMPLETE RESIDENCY DETERMINATION. For documents that you may need to complete the RDS process, click on the INITIAL CONSIDERATION link.
The Carteret Community College Admission’s staff is able to assist with the initial RDS process and provides access to a scanner/fax system for the submission of requested documentation. Carteret Community College cannot provide assistance with the completed RDS interview, password resets, or a reclassification/appeal status.
