Military Admission - Residency
If you are active-duty or a military dependent of an active duty service member and you do not qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, you may still be eligible for the Military Tuition Benefit. The service member must still be on active duty status on the first day of classes for the admitted term in order to be eligible for the benefit (i.e. date of discharge must be after the first day of classes for the admitted term).
Under this special North Carolina statute, members of the armed services stationed in North Carolina on active duty and their dependents may be eligible to pay a reduced tuition rate which is equivalent to the in-state tuition rate. You must file a special application (Military Residency Form) for the benefit that includes an affidavit on official letterhead confirming active military status and duty station and military dependent status if applicable (Confirmation of Command Residency Letter - Active-Duty Sample | Dependent of Active-Duty Sample).
