Residency Statement/Affidavit

Factors Affecting Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes: (No single piece of documentation will be considered conclusive.)

1.Immigration Status- Non-U.S. citizen applicants and/or parents must provide evidence of eligible legal immigration status in the U.S. before being considered for Florida resident fees. Please review www.flvc.org (Residency Guidelines) for more specific information on non-U.S. citizen categories that are eligible to be considered for in-state fees. International (F-1) applicants are NOT ELIGIBLE for Florida tuition rates.

2.Dependency Status- The determination of dependent or independent status is important because it is the basis for whether an applicant will submit his/her own documentation of residency (as an independent) or his/her parent(s) or guardian(s) documentation of residency (as a dependent). Applicants under 24 are automatically considered “dependent” unless they can prove otherwise. Applicants age 24 and over will automatically be considered independent. Additional documents such as tax returns and birth certificates may be requested to verify independent/dependent status.
