Beginning mid- to late March, students applying for admission, transfer, or readmission to any N. C. community college or university must establish residency using a Residency Determination Service (RDS) application. This service will enable students to use one in- or out-of-state residency determination for admissions applications to multiple North Carolina colleges and universities and to demonstrate residency for financial aid consideration.

Visit the North Carolina Residency Determination Service website for more information.

Request transcripts

Have an official high school transcript sent and official transcripts of all college work sent using the Transcript Request. You may want to contact any former institutions to determine if a fee is required with the request.

All GED transcript requests must be made to the NC GED Office.
