Verification of Florida Residency
As a result of Florida Statute 1009.21, which took effect on July 1, 2010, and Florida Statute 1009.22, which became effective on July 1, 2011, applicants seeking to enroll in career/technical education courses where tuition fees are assessed, must show proof of Florida residency. Those who can show proof of Florida residency will be eligible for the in-state tuition fees. Those who cannot show proof of residency will be charged out-of-state fees for career and technical education programs only. Florida residency for tuition purpose is defined as documented proof that a student has lived or resided in the State of Florida for twelve (12) consecutive months. This does not refer to other definitions of residency established by other entities, including the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).
