   Residence Status
    A legal resident of North Carolina is one who has domicile
(as opposed to temporary abode) in the State; however, the
definition of residence status for tuition purposes includes other
elements such as duration of residence. To be considered
eligible for in-state status, one must first be eligible to establish
legal residence and must have established and maintained such
residence for at least 12 consecutive months immediately prior
to the start of the term for which the in-state benefit is sought.
    For students enrolling in college curriculum classes, an
initial residence classification is made upon application to the                                                                               49
