Establishing In District Residency
Any change of tuition classification for students currently enrolled shall be determined by the Dean of Admission Services. Persons responsible for making tuition classification determinations are authorized to require such certificates, affidavits, documents, or other evidence as they deem necessary. In all cases, the burden of proof shall be upon the student making a claim to resident student status.
A student who provides false information or refuses or conceals information for the purpose of achieving resident status, or who fails to notify the Dean of Admission Services of a change of facts which might effect reclassification from resident to non-resident status, shall be required to pay retroactively any tuition fees which would normally have been charged and shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, including, but not necessarily limited to, dismissal from the College.
Changes from Non-resident to Resident Status
It is the responsibility of the student to apply to the Dean of Admission Services for reclassification to resident status if the student believes that changes in facts justify such a reclassification. The College will not assume responsibility for initiating such an inquiry independently. The student may submit such an application in writing on a form approved by the Dean of Admission Services at any time after the appropriate domiciliary requirements have been met, but no later than 30 days after the day on which classes begin for the session for which reclassification is requested.
Changes from Resident to Non-resident Status
If a student is classified as a resident, either the student or the College may initiate a reclassification inquiry, based on changes in facts which would justify such an inquiry. An unemancipated resident student whose parents or legal guardian leave the district and establish domicile outside the district shall be reclassified to non-resident status, effective with the beginning of the next academic session following said change.
Payment of Tuition and Fees
Students may pay tuition and fees in cash, by check or bank card at the Accounting Office in the Student Center. The College accepts VISA and MasterCard for tuition and fees payment. Students who have received a bill may submit their credit card information on their billing statement and return it to the Accounting Office or pay online.
Refunds - Including Financial Aid
Refunds are authorized when the student properly drops a course. (Refer to Dropping Courses section.) Approved refunds are issued approximately four to six weeks after the start of classes and mailed to the student's address on file. After the initial disbursement, the Accounting Office will issue refunds bi-weekly.
