For tuition purposes, all students seeking to earn college credit are classified as either in-state or out-of-state upon entering Blue Ridge. This classification, known as your residency status, is determined by the Residency Determination Service (RDS) and determines your tuition costs. If you are registered solely for non-credit continuing education courses, you do not need to establish tuition residency.
You should complete the RDS first to start your admissions process. The Application for Admission cannot be submitted without first obtaining your Residency Certification Number (RCN) from RDS.
Helpful Tip: Visit the RDS website and click on the “Initial Consideration” tab for a list of documents and information you may need to provide to complete the RDS process.
