Residency Determination Service

Establishing an in-state residency is another way to help you save money on college admission expenses. In North Carolina, a person's residency status is determined by a centralized service called Residency Determination Service (RDS). An RDS status is applicable for multiple NC public colleges and universities as well as state aid programs for all NC colleges and universities (public or private, 2 or 4 year).
