Residency Status for In-State Tuition Purposes

Application materials and appropriate supporting documentation must be submitted to Columbus State Community College prior to the start of the term 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.  If a student fails to apply for residency reclassification prior to the start of the term of enrollment, their application will be given consideration for the next term of enrollment.

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 prior to the first day of the semester.  Also, please note that a decision to reclassify a student as an Ohio resident for tuition purposes cannot be made without a review of all the required documents. Incomplete applications will not be processed.
