Texas Residency


Residency Information – Dallas County Community Colleges

The Residency Information form is provided as a courtesy to assist students in determining which documents may be required. It is neither official nor comprehensive. Official information concerning state of Texas residency requirements may be found at: www.thecb.state.tx.us.

Residency classification will be established in accordance with the Rules and Regulations of the Coordinating Board of the Texas College and University System, and the policies of the Dallas County Community College District Board of Trustees. The amount of tuition you are charged is based on your residency classification, which is determined by the Admissions Office according to the information you submit.

*To be eligible to be classified at a lower residency rate, all documents must be submitted by census date of that semester. The applicant has the burden of proof to show by clear and convincing evidence that residence or domicile, as appropriate, has been established and maintained.
