Campus Determination of Residency
The initial residency determination is made at the student's time of admission. Students with missing and/or conflicting information on their admission application are coded as non-resident, pending verification of their residency status.
Some students who indicate that they are residents of the state on their initial admission application may be asked to complete a residency application to verify their status. Failure to complete this application can result in the student being charged at the non-resident tuition rate.
Establishing New York State Residency for Tuition Billing Purposes
The State University of New York (SUNY) system was established to provide a quality
education at a reduced cost to qualified legal residents of New York state.
Classifying a student as a New York State resident versus an out-of-state resident is determined for all students in accordance with SUNY Policy 7810. Students who are classified as non-residents (out-of-state) can request reclassification and must support their request with documentation.
