Flex-Start Classes

Flex-Start Classes deliver material in a compact time-frame.


In 2013, the NC General Assembly (SB 402) directed NC colleges and universities to work together to create a centralized, uniform process for determining residency for tuition purposes and for the administration of State funded financial aid.

The state of NC will utilize a Residency Determination Service (RDS) to determine a student’s residency status for tuition and state aid purposes. Effective October 23, 2017, CVCC staff will be unable to make any residency decisions or changes for students.

Applicants will be required to complete an online Residency Interview before submitting the Application for Admission.

Please review important and detailed information about NC Residency.
