You are classified as a Colorado resident or non-resident for tuition purposes based on the information you provide on your admissions application.
Petition for Residency
If you have been classified as a non-resident and believe you qualify for resident tuition, please download and complete a Petition for Residency or a Correction to Application for Tuition Classification form. Non-residents who enroll in classes while their residency classification is being reviewed must pay the non-resident rates to hold a place in classes. If residency classification is changed, the college will refund the difference for the current semester.
Reduced Non-Resident Tuition
The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) program allows students who are residents of states that are part of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education to be eligible for a tuition rate that is less than non-resident tuition. At FRCC, eligible students pay 50 percent more than in-state tuition, which is considerably less than non-resident tuition. For a current list of colleges and universities participating in the WUE program, search the WUE Web site.
To receive WUE tuition rates at FRCC, complete a WUE application.
Residency for Colorado Active Duty Military and Dependents
Active-duty members of the armed forces of the United States and Canada on permanent duty station in Colorado and their dependents are eligible for in-state status, regardless of domicile or length of residence in Colorado. The military member must have reported to a duty station in the State, as certified by their military command, by the first day of class of the applicable academic term. To apply, please submit the Military Certification for Tuition Classification form to the Admissions and Records Office at your campus by the first day of semester for each term in which you are enrolling.
Honorably Discharged Veterans
Honorably discharged veterans and their dependents may qualify for in-state tuition. To apply, please submit the Veteran Residency Requirement Waiver or the Veteran Dependent Residency Requirement Waiver form to the Admissions and Records Office at your campus. Students who receive resident tuition classification as a result of this legislation are not counted as resident students for any other purpose; however, beginning with the fall semester 2011, these students shall be eligible to receive a stipend from the College Opportunity Fund.
