Residency Reclassification for In-State Tuition Purposes



The completed Ohio Residency Reclassification Application and all required documentation, as noted on the checklist, must be submitted to Columbus State Community College prior to the start of the semester of enrollment in order to be reviewed for the desired semester.  Please note that students are expected to make full payment, (including non-resident fees), by the appropriate due date.  Payment deadlines cannot be waived or extended while a student's residency is being reviewed.

The final deadline to submit reclassification documents is the first day of each semester.  Please be aware that if the first day of the semester begins on a day when Columbus State Community College is closed, the application is due on the last business day prior to the first day of the semester.

Please Note: A residency reclassification request cannot be granted if all of the required documents have not been provided by the processing deadline date.  Until a complete application packet with all of the required documents is submitted, by the processing deadline, a review cannot be completed.  If a student fails to apply for residency reclassification prior to the start of the semester of enrollment, a new application and all required documents will need to be submitted for future semesters.
