Certificate of Residency

If you live in a New York State county other than Rockland, a new Certificate of Residency must be submitted each year.  Certificates of Residency may be issued 60 days prior to each academic period and up to 30 days after the beginning of each period. Certificates obtained 30 days after the beginning of the academic period will be applied for the succeeding period.  Avoid being billed for out-of-state tuition by timely providing a Certificate of Residency.

You must request and receive your Certificate of Residency from the Treasurer’s Office in your home county.
