If you wish to be reviewed for New York State Residency in order to qualify for the in state tuition rate you must submit the New York State Residency application along with the required proof.
In general, to qualify for the University’s resident tuition rate, a student must establish that he/she is a New York State or City “resident”, as applicable, based on the requirements set forth in Part I, Section A below of the Manual.
- Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or in a qualifying immigration status or other categories; AND
- Have continuously maintained your principal place of abode in the State of New York for a period of at least twelve (12) consecutive months immediately preceding the first day of classes; AND
- Have a bona fide intention of living in New York permanently.
In addition, certain non-residents, including those who are undocumented or out-of-status students, are eligible for the resident tuition rate based on their attendance and graduation from a New York State high school or receipt of a GED or TASC in the state of New York. See Part I, Section B below. There are also several other categories of students who are eligible for the resident tuition rate. See Part I, Section C of the Residency Manual.
