A returning in-district student will continue to be considered in-district if (s)he can prove (s)he continues to reside in the district.

Out-of-District Residency

A new student will be considered out-of-district if (s)he can prove residency within Michigan prior to the first day of the semester of attendance at Kirtland, but cannot prove in-district residency.

Acceptable proof: driver’s license, verifiable rent receipts (if rent receipts are not available, a notarized letter from the landlord will be accepted), a dated lease agreement, voter’s registration card, place of residence property tax receipt, Secretary of State identification card.  Verifiable rent receipts must contain all the following information:  the address of the property being rented; the date of payment; signature, address and phone number of the landlord.

A student who resides outside the district can be assessed an in-district tuition rate if (s)he provides the college with tax receipts showing tax payments to the college, as long as the property is owned by the student or the student is a dependent of the person who owns the property.

A returning out-of-district student will be considered in-district if (s)he can prove in-district residency prior to the first day of the semester of attendance.

Out-of-State Residency

A student who cannot prove in-district or out-of-district residency will be considered out-of-state if (s)he is a U.S. citizen, or if (s)he is a registered alien (has a green card) who resides in the U.S. or if (s)he resides outside of the U.S. An out-of state student can change his/her classification to in-district in the same way that is described for out-of-district students.

International Student Status

A student who is not a U.S. citizen and who is attending Kirtland Community College under an F-1, J-1, or J-2 visa will be considered an international student.

The burden of proof of residency is the student’s responsibility and acceptable documentation must be provided to the admissions office prior to the first day of the semester in which the residency status is to be applied. Retroactive residency adjustments will not be considered.

Kirtland Community College will perform ongoing verification of residency information.  Students who have misrepresented information or have falsified documents may have to repay tuition, verify back records, or may be subject to disciplinary action by the College.  If a student has mail returned to the college, a hold code will be placed on his/her record and the student must verify his/her residency at the Admissions Office.
