Establishing In District Residency
To be classified as a resident of
District 517, one must have occupied a dwelling in the community
college district for 30 days immediately prior to the date
established to begin classes at Lake Land College. Students
who fail to meet the 30 day district residency requirement
may not meet that requirement by attending classes at the
college for 30 days or more.
Any change of tuition classification
for students currently enrolled shall be determined by the
Dean of Admission Services. Persons responsible for making
tuition classification determinations are authorized to require
such certificates, affidavits, documents, or other evidence
as they deem necessary. In all cases, the burden of proof
shall be upon the student making a claim to resident student
A student who provides false information or refuses or conceals
information for the purpose of achieving resident status,
or who fails to notify the Dean of Admission Services of a
change of facts which might effect reclassification from resident
to non-resident status, shall be required to pay retroactively
any tuition fees which would normally have been charged and
shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, including,
but not necessarily limited to, dismissal from the College.
Changes from Non-resident to Resident Status
It is the responsibility of the student
to apply to the Dean of Admission Services for reclassification
to resident status if the student believes that changes in
facts justify such a reclassification. The College will not
assume responsibility for initiating such an inquiry independently.
The student may submit such an application in writing on a
form approved by the Dean of Admission Services at any time
after the appropriate domiciliary requirements have been met,
but no later than 30 days after the day on which classes begin
for the session for which reclassification is requested.
Changes from Resident to Non-resident Status
If a student is classified as a resident, either the student
or the College may initiate a reclassification inquiry, based
on changes in facts which would justify such an inquiry. An
unemancipated resident student whose parents or legal guardian
leave the district and establish domicile outside the district
shall be reclassified to non-resident status, effective with
the beginning of the next academic session following said
