Residency Classification

RRCC classifies you as a Colorado resident or non-resident (for tuition purposes) based on your admissions application. We determine your tuition classification by the first day of the term or within ten business days for applications processed after the first day. The information below provides guidelines to residency classification. However, final classification is based on a number of factors. Contact Janis Eagan in the Admissions office (303.914.6543) for additional information.

To qualify for resident tuition classification, you must be / demonstrate:

  • Permanent residence in Colorado one year prior to first day of term (age 23 and older).
  • Parent’s permanent residence in Colorado one year prior to the first day of term (age 22 and under).
  • Married at least one year prior to the first day of the term (age 22 and under) and meet permanent residence requirements.
  • Active military duty in Colorado (includes children and spouse). Requires appropriate documentation.
  • Honorably discharged member of the Armed Services. Requires appropriate documentation.
  • Transferred to Colorado as part of economic incentive program-HB 1256 (includes children; not spouse). Requires appropriate documentation.
  • Emancipated minors (parents no longer provide support, care and custody; do not claim you on taxes). Requires a Petition for Tuition Classification.
  • Attendance a Colorado high school for three years and graduated immediately prior to applying at RRCC.
  • You earned a GED and resided in Colorado for three years immediately prior to applying to RRCC.

To Change Your Tuition Classification

  • If you previously attended RRCC as a non-resident, but now meet resident tuition requirements, complete a Petition for Tuition Classification.
  • If you feel you were misclassified on your application, contact Janis Eagan in the Admissions office (303.914.6543) or janis.eagan@rrcc.edu.
