Certificate of Residence

Admissions

Let us take the mystery out of the enrollment process.

 

Certificate of Residence

As a student of the State University of New York, if you are a New York State resident, you qualify for the New York resident tuition rate.  To be eligible, a student must have maintained a legal residence in New York state for one year and in county for six months immediately preceding the first day of the semester.

A Certificate of Residence issued by the student’s home county entitles the student to pay the resident tuition fee to attend a community college in New York State and not the higher, non-resident tuition.  The Certificate of Residence is EFFECTIVE FOR ONE YEAR from the date it is issued and the original copy needs to be submitted to the Bursar’s Office.  As each county may handle the process differently, it is important to check your County’s requirements for applying for a Certificate of Residence.

Fulton and Montgomery County residents do not need to submit a Certificate of Residence to the Bursar’s Office, however, they are required to verify their address on the student self-service portal (MYFM) each academic semester.  Providing false information or omission of data may result in disciplinary action from the College based on the standards of student conduct, available in “The Source Student Handbook”.

*Note:  Members of the U.S. Armed Forces, while on full-time active duty and stationed within New York State, and their spouses and dependents are eligible for the NY State resident tuition rate.*
