Summary

How to determine and apply for North Carolina residency status

North Carolina Residency

Information about qualifying for North Carolina residency, to be eligible for the resident tuition rate, is available on our website. Go to abtech.edu/admissions and scroll down to North Carolina Residency.

Residency Determination Service

As of October 23, 2017, residency is no longer determined by our Admissions Office. Keep in mind that this means the Admissions Office does not have the ability to override or change a student's residency status. All new students and returning students who have not taken classes for two semesters (excluding summers) will need to complete the Residency Determination Service (RDS) to establish their residency status. The basic application to A-B Tech will direct students to complete RDS as a part of the application.

If you have questions about RDS, contact their call center at (844) 319-3640 or email rdsinfo@ncresidency.org.

Distance Learning and Residency

Due to Department of Education requirements for distance education, only students residing in certain states outside of North Carolina may enroll in A-B Tech online curriculum classes. For additional information, contact the Admissions Office.

Residency Questions

With any questions about residency, contact our Admissions Office directly at admissions@abtech.edu. Be sure to include your full legal name and date of birth.
