Certificate of Residence

Have you officially resided in New York State but outside of Onondaga County in the past year? You may be able to reduce your tuition by submitting a Certificate of Residence issued by the Chief Financial Officer of your home county upon registration. Once on file with the Student Accounts Office, the certificate will be valid for one year from the issuance date.

Certificates of Residence (CR’S) may be obtained no earlier than two months prior to the registration date for any term or semester and must be submitted to the Student Accounts office no later than 30 days after the start of the semester. Certificates are valid for one year from the date of issuance and a new one must be submitted after the current one expires in order to continue to receive the In-State (Resident) tuition rate.  Students who do not submit a Certificate of Residence within the timeframe outlined above will be charged the non-resident tuition rate.
