Residency Requirements for Tuition Purposes
For the purpose of assessing registration and tuition fees, students will be classified as "resident or nonresident." A "resident" for tuition purposes is a person who qualifies for the in-state tuition rate; a "nonresident" for tuition purposes is a person who does not qualify for the in-state tuition rate.
At Florida A&M University there are two offices responsible for the initial review of residency for tuition purposes under Florida Statute 1009.21. These offices are: The Office of Admissions and The Office of the University Registrar. The first office determines residency for all first-time-on-campus students; the Office of the University Registrar is the only office to which students can apply for changes in residency once they are enrolled. First-time-on-campus students will be classified in accordance with the information on their applications, including the "Florida Resident Affidavit" on the last page of the application, providing no other information is available calling into question the information on the application.
Reclassification of residency for Tuition Purposes
A student applying to Florida A&M University must complete a residency form or affidavit in order to declare Florida residency for tuition purposes. An initial determination of in-state or out-of-state residency status is made by the Admissions Office for tuition purposes. This status determination remains in effect until an application for reclassification is submitted by the student to the Registrar’s Office and is approved. For Additional Information:
