Form Frd 1 - Florida Residency Declaration For Tuition Purposes Form


A Florida “resident for tuition purposes” is a person who has, or a dependent person whose parent or legal guardian has,
established and maintained legal residency in Florida for at least twelve (12) consecutive months preceding the first day
of classes of the term for which Florida residency is sought.
Residence in Florida must be a bona fide domicile rather than for the purpose of maintaining a residence incident to
enrollment at an institution of higher education.
To qualify as a Florida resident for tuition purposes, you must be a U.S. citizen, a foreign national in a nonimmigrant
visa classification that grants you the legal ability to establish a bona fide domicile in the United States, a permanent
resident alien, parolee, asylee, Cuban-Haitian entrant, legal alien granted indefinite stay by the U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services, or other qualified alien as defined under federal law. Other persons not meeting the twelve-
month legal residence requirements may be classified as Florida residents for tuition purposes only if they fall within
one of the limited special categories authorized by the Florida Legislature pursuant to section 1009.21, Florida
Statutes (see “Qualification by Exception” below). All other persons are ineligible for classification as a Florida
“resident for tuition purposes.”
Living in or attending school in Florida will not, in itself, establish legal residence. Students who depend upon out-of-
state parents for support are presumed to be legal residents of the same state as their parents.
Residency for tuition purposes requires the establishment of legal ties to the state of Florida. A student must verify
that the student has broken ties to other states if the student or, in the case of a dependent student, his or her parent
has moved from another state.

All Non-U.S.Citizen students seeking classification as a Florida resident for tuition purposes are required to submit
documentation of their legal status in the United States, as issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration
Services office.
I do not qualify as a Florida resident for tuition purposes for the term for which this application is submitted.
I understand that should I qualify for a future term, it will be necessary for me to submit an updated Residency
Declaration while providing prescribed, supporting documentation to substantiate as “reclassification” of my status.
I understand being classified as a non-Florida resident will not exclude me from the possibility of receiving a waiver to
cover part or all of the out-of-state fee as defined in s. 1009.26, Florida Statutes. Submission of an updated Residency
Declaration must occur prior to the beginning of the term for which residency is sought. I do not have to complete any
further portion of this form, with the exception of signing below.
