Residency Questionnaire


Please note that you may be requested to provide additional information during the review process. During peak processing please allow up to 10 business days for the forms to be reviewed after all requested documents have been received.

Students who do not have the documentation required for residency determination by the College, will need to pay the out-of-state fees. Failure to submit all required documentation, or failure to drop classes before the term begins and/or by the published course deadlines may result in paying nonresident fees.

It is recommended that students submit their requests in a timely manner to ensure there are no delays with their enrollment records. For additional questions, please email the Admissions & Records office at or call 760-773-2516.
