Determination of Resident Status

An in-state student is defined as an American citizen or a permanent resident alien who has resided in Massachusetts, for purposes other than attending an educational institution, for at least six months immediately preceding the student's entry or re-entry as a student. For more details and information, contact the STCC Admissions Office at (413) 755-3333 or admissions@stcc.edu.

A number of factors will be considered to determine the intention of an individual to maintain permanent residence in Massachusetts. No single factor will be considered decisive. Each case will be decided on the basis of all facts submitted by the student. The burden of proof rests with the student seeking in-state classification. The following indicators could be considered in determination of resident status.

  1. copies of federal and state income tax forms
  2. documentation of Massachusetts voter registration
  3. copies of valid Massachusetts driver's license and automobile registration
  4. permanent employment in a position not normally filled by a student
  5. continuous physical presence in Massachusetts during periods when not an enrolled student
  6. former residency in Massachusetts and maintenance of significant connections there while absent
  7. all other materials of whatever kind or source which may have a bearing on residency

New England Regional Student Program

The New England Regional Student Program enables New England residents to enroll in out-of-state public colleges and universities in the six-state region (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont) at reduced tuition rates, for certain degree programs that are not offered by their home-state public institutions. The purpose of the program is to expand opportunities in higher education for New England residents by facilitating access to programs not commonly offered at every institution. This practice tends to reduce duplication of courses, and to utilize most efficiently the higher educational facilities in each state. For detailed information, contact the STCC Admissions Office at (413) 755-3333 or admissions@stcc.edu, any high school guidance counselor, or the New England Board of Higher Education, 45 Temple Place, Boston, MA 02111, (617) 357-9620.
