RESIDENT STATUS

Establishing residency – LSCS must determine the

residency status of all students for tuition purposes.

All new students will be required to sign an oath

of residency and may be required to provide

substantiating documentation. Students returning

to college after not enrolling for both the prior fall

and spring semester will be required to reaffirm

their residency status and may be required to

provide substantiating documentation.

Some non-US citizens may qualify to pay Texas

residency rates:

1. Texas high school graduates or GED

certified

a. Resident of Texas for 36 months prior to

receiving high school diploma or GED.

b. Reside in Texas 12 months prior to enrolling

in college.

c. Provide a notarized affidavit stating that the

student will file an application to become a

permanent resident at the earliest opportunity

that he or she is eligible to do so.

2. Applied to domicile

The student submits notification (I485) that their

petition to domicile has been approved.

Residency is determined at the time of registration

and can only be changed prior to the census

date of the semester. Residency is determined by

the student’s current address or by the address

of the parent or legal guardian if the student is

eligible to be claimed as a dependent for federal

income tax purposes. A post office box can be

used as a mailing address but cannot be used

to establish residency.

It is the responsibility of the student to register

under the correct residency classification. If

there is a question about classification, it is

the student’s responsibility, prior to the time of

registration, to discuss this with the admissions

office and have an official determination made.

Additional information regarding residency

requirements may be found in the college

admissions office. The chief student services

officer is the final authority on all questions on

residency. Deliberate falsification of residence

status or documentation will result in the student

having to pay the difference in the charges and

may subject a student to immediate dismissal.

For tuition purposes, students will be classified

according to the following guidelines:

1. In-district Texas resident

Students or dependent students whose

parents or legal guardians have been

a resident of Texas for the 12 months

before the date of registration and

who reside in the Lone Star College

district (within the boundaries of the independent

school districts of Aldine, Conroe,

Cypress-Fairbanks, Humble, Klein, Magnolia,

New Caney, Splendora, Spring,

Tomball, and Willis) on the official reporting

date are considered residents of the district.

Individuals, or their dependents, who are

not residents of the district, but own property

which is subject to ad valorem taxation by

the district, shall pay tuition and fees at the

rate applicable to a student who resides in

the district. Persons, or their dependents,

applying for such waiver shall verify property

ownership by presentation of an ad

valorem tax statement or receipt issued by

the County Tax Assessor Collector; or by

presentation of a deed, property closing

statement, or other appropriate evidence

of ownership of property which is subject

to ad valorem taxation by the district. A

foreign student is not eligible for waiver of

the nonresident tuition rate due to payment

of ad valorem taxes.

2. Out-of-district Texas resident

A student who has been a Texas resident for

the 12 months prior to the official reporting

date of the semester in which the student

is registering and who resides outside

the boundaries of the Lone Star College

System is considered an out-of-district Texas

resident. Any individual who lives in Texas for

36 months immediately prior to high school

graduation from a public, home school

program, or an accredited private high

school or received the GED certificate as an

alternative to high school graduation, lived

in Texas the 12 months prior to the official

reporting date of the semester in which the

student is registering, registers as an entering

student not earlier than fall 2001, and if not

a US citizen provide an affidavit stating the

individual will file an application to become

a permanent resident will be considered

a Texas resident for payment of tuition. A

minor or dependent can establish residency

separate from his/her parents.

3. Non-resident of Texas

A student or dependent student whose parent

or legal guardian resides out of state

or has not been a resident of the state for

the 12 months prior to the official reporting

date of the semester in which the student is

registering is considered a non-resident of

Texas.

4. Military personnel

Military personnel or their families should

check with the college admissions office for

requirements on resident tuition.

5. Transfer students

Students transferring from other Texas higher

education institutions and who were enrolled

the preceding spring or summer semesters

will retain their previous classification unless

they apply for residency status change.
