Important Notes

Students must document their residency before the first day of the semester in order to receive in-district or Monroe rates for that semester. Students who qualify for residency after the beginning of a semester will be granted the appropriate tuition rates for the following semester. The college will not make retroactive changes to residency status.

Veterans retain the residency they had at the time they entered the military. They can qualify for in-district tuition as stated above.

If a student cannot provide any of the documents listed above, please contact Admissions, Records, or the Monroe Enrollment Office for further guidance.

The documents will be reviewed and decided upon by the Residence Committee. Appeals of committee decisions will be reviewed by the Vice President for Student Affairs.

The College reserves the right to request additional information when appropriate. Until this residency documentation is received, student tuition will be assessed at the out-of-county or out-of-state rate. Falsification of records will result in immediate and retroactive residence change to out-of-county or out-of-state rates, and could result in disciplinary action.

NCC's decision to approve in-district residency may be challenged by the school district if their records do not reflect proper residency status.

Those not enrolled in Sponsoring Northampton County or Monroe County and out-of-state students will be charged non-resident fees.
