Certificate of Residence
Residents of Jefferson County
Once each academic year, a student is required by law to present a Certificate of Residence indicating that he or she has been a legal resident of New York State for one year and Jefferson County for six months prior to registration. Students admitted to or returning to the College must complete a Certificate of Residence form (PDF).
Other New York State Residents
Students admitted to the College will be emailed a link for the Application for Certificate of Residence with their tuition e-bill notification. This application must be completed and returned to the County Treasurer of the county in which the student resided for the six-month period prior to registration. The County Treasurer will then issue a Certificate of Residence which must be returned to the College. This resident status must be certified each year.
Your Certificate of Residence must be completed and returned before any non-resident tuition charges are removed. If you do not submit the form within the required timeframe, generally 30 days from the start of the semester, you will be responsible for all additional non-resident charges.
Senior Citizen Policy
Citizens 60 years of age or older who wish to audit credit courses on a space available basis may do so tuition-free.
Outstanding Financial Obligations
Unpaid financial obligations will be assigned to an external collection agency. All collection and related legal costs will be added to the amount of indebtedness.
