Residency

Residency Information

Being a Florida resident for tuition purposes means the student pays less per credit hour than a non-Florida resident. In order to be classified as a Florida resident for tuition purposes, the student or the student's parent/legal guardian must have established Bona Fide Domicile and legal ties to the state for Florida, at least 12 consecutive months prior to the first day of the term in which the student is seeking in-state residency status. A student is classified as either a dependent or independent student.  In rare cases, a student may qualify for temporary in-state status by qualifying under an Exception Category.

Have questions about Florida's requirements and definitions for in-state residency? Florida Statute Section 1009.21 provides information on the criteria required by the State of Florida.
