Residency Classifications

The Washington State Legislature sets requirements and procedures for determining a student’s residency classification.

The Registration Office will make an initial determination of residency status from the information provided on the student’s Application for Admission and notify those who have been classified as a nonresident at the time of registration.

To request a review of nonresident status or apply for reclassification, the student must submit a complete Residency Questionnaire with the required documentation to the Director of Registration no more than 30 calendar days after classes begin. It is up to the student to prove residency, and inadequate or erroneous documentation may result in denial of reclassification for that particular quarter.

Current residency classifications and rates are posted on the LCC website.
