Florida residency status for tuition purposes should be established with the Admissions Office. You may be classified as a Florida resident if you are independent (or your parent, legal guardian, or person in a parental role if you are dependent); a United States citizen, a permanent resident, or other legal status granted indefinite stay; have no legal ties to any other state; have resided and had habitation, domicile, home and permanent abode in the state of Florida for at least 12 consecutive months immediately prior to the first day of the course(s) for which residency is being sought. Residency decisions may be appealed in writing. All appeals will be considered in accordance with 1009.21 Florida Statutes, State Board of Education Rules 6A-10.044 and 6A-20.003, and the Articulation Coordinating Committee’s “Guidelines on Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes.” Appeals will be considered for the semester in which it is received and for any future semesters. Retroactive appeals will not be considered.
Submission Deadline: for this type of appeal is the first day of class for the semester.
