4.10 Residency Requirements

Students enrolling in Northeastern Junior College are classified as residents or nonresidents of Colorado according to established guidelines.  The decision will be based upon information furnished by the student and all other available, relevant information.  The Director of Admissions is authorized to require such written documents, affidavits, verifications or other evidence as deemed necessary to establish the residence of a student.  These documents may include proof of adoption, emancipation, award of custody or appointment of a guardian.  The burden of establishing that a student is exempt from paying the nonresident fees and tuition rests with the student.
