Yes...you did not move there.  Make sure you are filing an NC non-resident tax return.

For tax purposes, you did not become an NC resident.

I can see how that question would be confusing to a college student who is from another state. AS a dependent of your parents, you are only in NC temporarily, and you are not in NC to become a resident ...at least not until you graduate and are completely independent from your parents.
