Hello all,
We were living in NC for last 3 years and love it very very much. Our daughter is attending one of the public university in Raleigh. She is classified as in state resident for tuition purpose. Unfortunately my husband got his job transferred to another state and we have to relocate. Question is if my daughter status will change to out of state resident for tuition purpose because of this situation.. All suggestions are greatly appreciated!

If she continues to live in NC when school is not in session, then she would continue to have in state tuition.

If she moves with you (summers, etc) than it could be classified as an out of state student.

Ask the school to make sure. I'm sure they've run into this problem before

I think this is the relevant regulations.

Classification Manual :: Determinations | Residency | Office of the University Registrar (http://regweb.unc.edu/residency/manual_classifications.php - broken link)

Bare minimum, your daughter retains in state tuition for 12 months after your move. It sounds like if she establishes her full time residence in NC (ie gets a year round apt and stays during the summer, as mentioned above), she can retain it for her entire education, but that wasn't clearly spelled out.

I think it's worth the money to rent your daughter an apartment in Raleigh even if she goes to live with you for some time during breaks. However, make sure that she doesn't work out of state for more than a month or two, as then there is an argument against maintaining in-state status.

My understanding (based on friends' experience when they were in college), is that if she holds an NCDL (of course that means an apartment or something for her) and files taxes (doesn't have to be for much, and usually students get it deferred or back anyway) she qualifies for in-state, regardless of where parents live. The tax thing may be for those applying for in-state, after having already attended as out-of-state students though.
