New York State Resident
Residence for purposes of tuition refers to student’s permanent home. In order to qualify as a New York State Resident for tuition purposes, in addition to other criteria, a student must be “domiciled” in New York State for a 12-month period immediately prior to the first day of the semester for which application is made. Residency applications can be obtained from the Student Accounts Office. A domicile is defined as that place where an individual maintains a permanent home to which the intention is to return when not in attendance. Resident tuition rates are applied to members of the Armed Forces of the United States and their dependents.
