New York State Residency: The Student Records and Financial Services Office will determine New York State residency per SUNY guidelines. If NYS residency status is in question, the student will be charged out-of-state tuition until the student provides proof of NYS residency. Forms are available in the Student Records and Financial Services Office and online.

Certain nonresident students may be eligible for the resident tuition rate if they meet the following requirements:

  5. Members of the U.S. Armed Forces while on full-time active duty and stationed within New York State, as well as their dependents and spouse.
  6. Dependents of full-time active duty personnel who are stationed outside New York State qualify for resident tuition if the service member's "Home of Record" is New York.
