Residency Status and Contact Information
Residency status determines the tuition rate students are charged each semester they register. Students are expected to maintain accurate contact information on file with the college, including phone numbers, emergency contact, and address. The College uses your address to determine your residency status and tuition rate. There is a deadline each semester for address changes that impact tuition. Students can update their information in the Registration Center.
A resident student is one whose legal residence is within the College District. The College District includes the public school districts of Clarenceville, Garden City, Livonia, Northville, Plymouth-Canton, and part of Novi. Students may be asked to certify residence status at any time while attending the College. Students are charged tuition based on the address on record in the Records Office. Students with an unreported address change will be charged the appropriate tuition rate. Resident status is determined at the beginning of each semester.
A non-resident student is one who resides outside of the College District.
An out-of-state student is one whose legal residence is beyond the boundaries of the State of Michigan.
International students who are admitted to the college are considered out-of-state residents for tuition rates, regardless of length of residency within the district or state.
Unmarried Students Under 18 Years of Age:
The legal residence of unmarried students under 18 years of age is that of their parents or guardian, regardless of where the student may be residing. For those over 18, the legal residence is that city in which residence is permanently maintained.
Residency Status Change
The Associate Dean of Enrollment Services will review questions about resident and nonresident status. Students who change their legal residence must complete a Change of Address form in the Registration Center. Addresses are verified by US mail for resident tuition purposes.
