**Residency Determination for NC College Applications**
All students applying to colleges and universities in North Carolina, both public and private, must complete a Residency Determination. This will determine whether you must pay in-state or out-of-state tuition at the public schools and whether or not you qualify for state funded aid consideration at public and private institutions. We recommend that you fill this out as early as possible so you will have your code to use in applications for schools in North Carolina.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is not yet open for high school seniors. The opening date is still yet to be determined due to changes in the FAFSA form. The earliest it will be available is December of 2023. Do not fill out a FAFSA form until the FAFSA 2024-25 school year is available. We will communicate as soon as we know the opening date.
Transcript Requests for College Applications
Use the Transcript Request Form to request paper transcripts that YOU WILL PICK UP TO MAIL to colleges or universities. Your transcript(s) will be ready for pick-up in the Guidance office within 24 hours of your request. You do not need to submit transcript requests for colleges you are applying to through the Common App or the Coalition App.
Most colleges and universities will require either your ACT / SAT score(s) be sent directly from the testing agencies. If ordered after you take the test, there is a fee for this service. Do not confuse self reporting test scores on an application with sending official test scores.
The school profile contains statistics on our school which may be requested on college applications. This profile is linked to the Common App for schools to access.
