Verifying New York State Residency


Establishing New York State Residency
In general, to qualify for the in-state tuition rate based on residence in the State of New York, a student must:
  • Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or in a qualifying immigration status (see section below regarding qualifying immigration statuses); AND
  • Have continuously maintained his/her 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.
For more detailed information on City University of New York regulations regarding establishing New York State residency, please Download the Tuition and Fee Manual.

Students are expected to be aware of their tuition status and the applicable resident tuition rules.

Appeal Procedures
If you wish to appeal, you must notify the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in writing within ten days of being notified that you have been determined to be a non-resident. At that time, you may submit a statement to the Welcome Center, located in Jefferson Hall, indicating why you disagree with the decision. Your appeal, the residency form, copies of all documentation, and the determination will be submitted to the senior vice chancellor for legal affairs and general counsel.

Deadline for Submitting Forms
All residency documentation must be submitted prior to the last day of the semester. No residency form will be accepted after the end of the semester for which the student is applying for a determination.
