Resident vs Non-Resident Fees

You will notice that we are rolling out different fees for residents and non-residents for some of our programs. We have always had this distinction for our gym memberships and facility rentals and are now introducing it to our programs. If you try to register for a program and get an error message saying that "Fee not valid for residency" please take a moment to head into your account profile. Under the General Information section there is an address section. There you will see that you have a designation of either "Resident" or "Non-Resident".  Just to note, you can live in Swansboro or have a 28584 postal code and be considered non-resident. To be considered a resident in the system, you must be within the city limits. You can also check for yourself on the Geographical Information Services map for Onlsow County by using the search function on this website The properties filled in pink in the Swansboro are are considered to be within city limits. If your property is not filled in pink, you are not within city limits.
