Residency Information

For tuition purposes, students who enroll in Grayson College will be classified in one of three categories: In-District Resident, Out-of-District Resident or Non-Resident of Texas.

The following definitions briefly describe the residency requirements specified in Texas statures and in rules and regulations of the Coordinating Board, Texas College and University System. More detailed information on residency classification may be obtained in the Admissions Office.

In-District Resident – A student who resides in Grayson County and who has been a resident of Texas for the twelve months preceding the date of registration.

Out-of-District Resident – A student who resides in a Texas county other than Grayson County and who has been a resident of Texas for the twelve months preceding the date of registration.

Non-Resident of Texas – A student under 18 years of age who lives away from his family and whose family resides in another state or whose family has not resided in Texas for the twelve months preceding the date of registration, or a student 18 years of age or older who resides out-of-state or who has not been a resident of the state for twelve months preceding the date of registration.

NOTE: Oklahoma residents are classified as non-residents but are eligible to receive a waiver of non-resident tuition and will be charged out-of-district rates.

Anyone who enrolls as a non-resident of Texas is presumed to remain in the classification as long as he/she maintains continuous enrollment. To appeal your residency status, see Admissions (website or office). It is the responsibility of the student to provide residency documentation and notice of residency changes. Residency changes are not retroactive. Changes are only effective for future semesters from the date appeals are received.
