Residency Requirements

A student who has resided within Illinois and the Harper College District 512, thirty days immediately prior to the start of the term, is eligible to be classified as a resident student for tuition calculation purposes.
 
Residency requirements may differ for limited enrollment program admission. Proof of residence status is required at the time of registration. Proof of residence can include a driver's license, state ID, or a current (within 30 days) bank statement, cell phone, utility, or credit card bill.

A permanent resident is defined as an individual who:

a) is a citizen of the United States or has established permanent residence (holds an I-551 alien registration card) and

b) resides in the Harper College district for reasons other than attending Harper College.

The Registrar's Office shall make the final determination of permanent residency status.

A student who has resided in Illinois, but outside the Harper district, for thirty days immediately prior to the start of the term shall be classified as a non-resident student.

A student who has resided in Illinois for fewer than thirty days immediately prior to the start of the term shall be classified as an out-of-state student. Students who move from outside the state or district and who obtain residence in the state or Harper district for reasons other than attending the community college shall be exempt from the thirty day requirement if they demonstrate through documentation a verifiable interest in establishing permanent residency. The Registrar's Office shall make the final determination of residency status for tuition purposes. 

A student whose permanent residence is outside the United States and is attending Harper College on a visa shall be classified as an international student.
