Certificate of Residence
To qualify for in-state tuition rate, you are required by NYS Education Law to submit once each academic year a certificate of residence (COR) to the SUNY CCC Student Accounts office indicating that you have been a legal resident of New York State for 1 year and of a county for 6 months. A certificate of residence from your home county is the only proof of residence that allows you to pay the in-state tuition rate.
New York counties will issue certificates for up to 60 calendar days prior to the start of a semester and until 30 days into the semester. Counties are permitted by law to refuse COR applications after the 30th day of the semester, and many counties adhere to this deadline with NO EXCEPTIONS.
To apply for a Certificate of Residency, please refer to your county website below.
