Place of Residence

Students are eligible for the tuition rate for residents of New York State if they meet the following requirements for resident status: are 18 years of age or older, are United States citizens or aliens with permanent resident status, have maintained their principal place of abode in New York State for a period of 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the first day of classes for the semester under consideration, and state their intention to live permanently and maintain their principal place of abode in New York State. The residence of a person under the age of 18 is that of his/her parents unless the person is an emancipated minor (one whose parents have intentionally and voluntarily renounced all the legal duties and surrendered all the legal rights of their position as parents). Students currently classified as non-residents, who wish to apply for resident status, must present proof that the above conditions have been met to the Office of Admissions or the Office of the Registrar.
