Residency Status

For the purposes of determining tuition charges, a student is considered a resident of the State of New York if the student has a principal place of residence in the State of New York for a period of at least 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the first day of classes for the semester with respect to which the residency determination is made. Such a student must state an intention to live permanently and maintain a principal place of residence in New York State. Residence in a dormitory, hotel, or other temporary housing facility does not in itself establish New York State residency. The College may require appropriate documentation to verify residency status.


*Winter and summer tuition rates are charged on a per credit basis and will also incur the per semester mandatory fees (student activity fee, consolidated fee and the technology fee). John Jay students taking winter session classes are not charged the mandatory fees.
