FLORIDA RESIDENCY DECLARATION FOR TUITION PURPOSES
A Florida “resident for tuition purposes” is a person who has, or a dependent person whose parent or legal guardian has, established
and maintained legal residency in Florida for at least twelve (12) consecutive months preceding the first day of classes of the term for
which Florida residency is sought.
Residence in Florida must be a bona fide domicile rather than for the purpose of maintaining a residence incident
to enrollment at
an institution of higher education.
To qualify as a Florida resident for tuition purposes, you must be a U.S. citizen, a foreign national in a nonimmigrant visa
classification that grants you the legal ability to establish a bona fide domicile in the United States, a permanent resident alien,
parolee, asylee, Cuban-Haitian entrant, legal alien granted indefinite stay by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, or other
qualified alien as defined under federal law. Other persons not meeting the twelve-month legal residence requirements may be
classified as Florida residents for tuition purposes only if they fall within one of the limited special categories authorized by the
Florida Legislature pursuant to section 1009.21, Florida Statutes (see “Qualification by Exception” below). All other persons are
ineligible for classification as a Florida “resident for tuition purposes.”
Living in or attending school in Florida will not, in itself, establish legal residence. Students who depend upon out-of-state parents
for support are presumed to be legal residents of the same state as their parents.
Residency for t
uition purposes requires the establishment of legal ties to the state of Florida. A student must verify that the
student has broken ties to other states if the student or, in the case of a dependent student, his or her parent has moved from
another state.

I do not qualify as a Florida resident for tuition purposes for the term for which this application is submitted. I understand
that should
I qualify for a future term, it will be necessary for me to submit an updated Residency Declaration while
providing prescribed,
supporting documentation to substantiate as “reclassification” of my status. Per State Board of
Education Rule 6A-10.044(2), a
minimum of three documents are required. I understand being classified as a non-Florida
resident will not exclude me from the
possibility of receiving a waiver to cover part or all of the out-of-state fee as defined in
s. 1009.26, Florida Statutes. Submission of an updated Residency Declaration must occur prior to the beginning of the term
for which
residency is sought. I do not have to complete any further portion of this form, with the exception of signing below.
