Quick question. This has been on my mind for a little while and soon will need to know. I will be relocating to Charlotte to attend UNCC. I have a question about In-State/Out-Of-State tuition. I know if I relocate and start school as soon as I get there, i'm gonna have to pay Out-Of-State tuition, but I was wondering, after the first year if I can show that I intend to stay a resident can I get In-State-Tuition that second year of scvhool?? Another question is can I be ANYWHERE in the Charlotte Metro EVEN if it is across the border in SC (Fort Mill to be exact) and still be counted as "In-State"?

Well I can't answer all your questions but I can tell you that living in SC will not get you In-State tuition at an NC State University including UNCC. Last I knew anything it required simple things like NCDL and NC tags on your car but I am not sure for what time period.

1.How do I qualify for residency for in-state tuition status?

This benefit provided by the citizen taxpayers of North Carolina is afforded to residents of the State in anticipation of present and future benefit to the State. Under North Carolina law, to qualify for in-state tuition for a given term, you must prove that you established your legal residence in NC 12 months prior to the start of the term and you have maintained it for at least 12 continuous months and that you are here for a purpose other than school.

I'm pretty sure after one year you can get in state residency, as long as you are self supporting.

Sorry, you must live IN NC to get in state tuition.

As soon as you get here, get a driver's license and register your car. You will also need proof that you came for some reason other than to go to school, i.e. a job or you moved here with family. So, relocating to go to UNCC would not be accepted. Then, you wait for a year.

This is a tricky wicket. Might be a quick question, but it really isn't a quick answer. From what I have learned, if you come here to attend college, you will not be able to qualify for in-state tuition. Otherwise, wouldn't you expect virtually every junior or senior who entered freshman year from out of state to qualify for in-state tuition? Well, they don't.

If you move to NC and took a year off school, maybe got a job and established yourself as a resident, then you might qualify for in-state tuition. Bear in mind that the school still might take the position that you moved to NC to attend school and the burden will be on you to prove otherwise.

We moved here as a family (with my 21 year old son), paid out of state tuition for 1 year, then qualified for instate tuition, but we all moved here. It is much more difficult for a student on his/her own to prove that.

NC recognizes that they have some very attractive state universities compared to many other states in both quality and price, so they don't make it easy to qualify for in-state tuition. Out of state tuition here at CC was about the same as in-County tuition in NJ.

Also, register to vote! And if you're moving here at the start of the fall semester try and get a job before the end up the year so that you can show that you've filled taxes in NC.

The site only says "you must prove that you established your legal residence in NC"... but is METRO Charlotte included? Even if that part of the metro area happens to be in SC? This is my dilemma.

From what I gather from looking over the link you provided is that even though it is part of the Charlotte metro if it is in SC it wont be considered "In-State"
