Residence Requirements

A student's residency classification is established when admitted to Gogebic Community College.

DISTRICT RESIDENT (GOGEBIC COUNTY, Michigan)

A district resident is a legal resident of Gogebic County. A legal resident is one whose permanent, primary residence or domicile is where s/he intends to return whenever absent from college. A dormitory or apartment rented only during college enrollment is not a permanent primary residence.

Applicants meeting one or more of the following conditions at the time of admission will be classified with in-district residency:

  1. The applicant is a minor who lives with his/her parent or legal guardian provided that the parent or legal guardian has resided within Gogebic County for at least six (6) consecutive months immediately prior to the first day of the semester in which the applicant plans to enroll.
  2. The applicant is at least 18 years of age at the time of registration in the institution and has resided in Gogebic County at least six (6) consecutive months immediately prior to the first day of the semester without being registered at a college or university during that period.
  3. The applicant is an employee of a business or industrial firm within Gogebic County, and the employer, by written agreement, agrees to pay directly to the college all tuition and/or fees of the sponsored student for employer-approved classes.
  4. The applicant is an alien who has filed Declaration of Intention to become a citizen of the United States and who otherwise meets the residence requirements of the district.

Any student originally registered as a district resident who later fails to qualify as a district resident in accordance with the above policy will be considered as a non-resident for subsequent semesters.

No person is deemed to have gained or lost residency in the district while a student at any educational institution, public or private.

Time spent at GCC as a student does not count toward the six (6) months needed for residency.

The residence status of any student shall not be changed while registered as a student at GCC, except by change of status effected under item 1 above.

It is the student's responsibility prior to registration to inform the Registrar's Office of any change in residence or status that would affect his/her classification as a resident.

MICHIGAN RESIDENT (NON-DISTRICT)

Applicants who fail to qualify as in-district residents but meet one or more of the following conditions at the time of admission will be classified with out-of-district residency:

  1. The applicant is a minor who lives with his/her parent or legal guardian, provided that the parent or legal guardian has resided within the State of Michigan for at least six (6) consecutive months immediately prior to the first day of the semester in which the applicant plans to enroll.
  2. The applicant is at least 18 years of age at the time of registration in the institution and has resided in the State of Michigan at least six (6) consecutive months immediately prior to the first day of the semester without being registered at a college or university during that period.
  3. The applicant is an employee of a business or industrial firm within the State of Michigan and the employer, by written agreement, agrees to pay directly to the college all tuition and/or fees of the sponsored student for employer-approved classes.
  4. The applicant is an alien who has filed Declaration of Intention to become a citizen of the United States and who otherwise meets the residence requirements of the State of Michigan.

Any student originally registered as a state resident who later fails to qualify as a state resident in accordance with the above policy will be considered as non-resident.

No person is deemed to have gained or lost residency in the state while a student at any educational institution, public or private.

Time spent here as a student does not count toward the six (6) months needed for residency.

It is the student's responsibility prior to registration to inform the Registrar's Office of any change in residence or status that would affect his/her classification as a resident.

OUT-OF-STATE

Applicants who do not qualify as district or Michigan residents will be classified as out-of-state.

  1. No person is deemed to have gained or lost residency in the state while a student at any educational institution, public or private.
  2. Under no circumstances may a non-immigrant alien qualify as a Michigan resident.
