Determining Residency

Determining Residency

Your residency status can have a significant effect on your tuition costs. Colorado residents are eligible to receive tuition costs credits from the Colorado College Opportunity Fund, (COF). To be considered a Colorado resident, a student must live in Colorado for one year or more immediately preceding the first day of classes. For students under the age of 23, residency is based on the residency of the parent. If a student is an emancipated minor, residency will be determined apart from the parents. Some of the documentation used to determine residency includes:

  • Owning your primary residential home in Colorado
  • Payment of Colorado State Income Tax
  • Colorado Vehicle Registration
  • Colorado Driver's License
  • Permanent Employment in Colorado
  • Voter Registration
  • Graduation from a Colorado High School

Residency petitions must be received by the drop date of the semester.  The determination of a student's residency status is determined under Colorado State Residency Laws.  If you feel your residency for tuition purposes is incorrect, please complete the supplemental residency petition.
