How old do you have to be to leave home without consent?

I know a friend that is 17 and she wants to leave hme. She lives in North Carolina and she wants to move with a friend in Tennessee that is 26. Her family treats her really bad but she does not want to break up the rest of her siblings she just wants to leave and o to school in Tennessee. She is really afraid that her mom and step dad are going to give her a hard time on this. Anyone?
