Residency is based on location of the student's actual habitation at the time of registration, associated with the intent to remain at that location. Classification of residency, as determined when fees are paid, remains in effect for the entire term. Residency of students under 18 is that of the parent or legal guardian, or as otherwise established by law.
Persons enrolling at South Suburban College are classified for residency purposes as:
Proof of District Residency for In-District Tuition: As a public community college within the state of Illinois, South Suburban College adheres to current residency requirements set forth by the Illinois Community College Board. To receive in-district tuition at South Suburban College, all new students must provide proof of established residency within Community College District 510 at least 30 days prior to initial term registration. Classification of residency remains in effect for the entire term.
A student who resides in Community College District 510 for educational purposes only does not gain the status of in district resident regardless of the length of the student's stay in the district.
A student who fails to submit adequate information to establish residency in Community College District 510, will be classified as a non-district resident, thus paying out-of district tuition. To prove residency, you will be required to provide a valid driver's license or state issued ID card with the in-district address: at your initial application time; if you have an address change; or returned mail. If you are unable to provide either one of those items, see additional acceptable items below.
A total of three documents (one from each category below) will be required to verify in-district residency. Each document must list the student's name and residential address (not a Post Office box), and at least one of the documents must be dated within the last 30 days.
|Category I||Category II||Category III|
*Can be used for either Category I or II – not both
