RESIDENCY


In order for a student to be classified as an in-state resident for tuition purposes, the student must have created a domicile in Texas and resided in Texas the 12 months immediately preceding registration at a Texas public institution. Specific information about state residency requirements can be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records.

The Board of Trustees of Navarro College has authorized the waiver of the difference in the rate of tuition for nonresident and resident students for a person, or his or her dependents, who own property that is subject to ad valorem taxation by the district. The person, or his or her dependents, applying for such a waiver shall verify property ownership by presentation of an ad valorem tax statement or receipt issued by the tax office of the district; or by presentation of a deed, property closing statement, or other appropriate evidence of ownership of property that is subject to ad valorem taxation by the district.
Based on SB 1528, an undocumented individual who enters a Texas institution of higher education is a resident of Texas if he or she:

  1. Attended a Texas public or private high school;
  2. Graduated from the high school or received the equivalent of a high school degree in Texas;
  3. Resided in Texas for at least three (3) consecutive years as of the date he/she graduated from high school or received the equivalent of a high school degree;
  4. Provides his/her college an affidavit that he or she intends to file an application to become a permanent resident of the United States at the earliest opportunity the individual is eligible to do so.

Residency requirements are administered by the Office of Admissions and Records. Students may inquire, apply for, and present documentation supporting reclassification of their residency through the Office of Admissions and Records. The Director of Admissions/Registrar serves as the chief residency officer for the College District.
