The Kaskaskia College Board of Trustees has established a policy on residency, which authorizes the Administration to implement guidelines, consistent with existing law, for classifying students as Illinois In-District, Illinois Out-of-District, Out-of-State, or International. Students are required to pay the tuition and fees appropriate to his/her residency classification.

An initial residency classification is assigned to new students based on the information provided on the initial Student Admissions Form. Important to note is that students new to the district must establish residency at least thirty (30) days prior to the start of the semester.

The word residence is generally interpreted to have no fixed meaning in the law, but may have a variety of meanings dependent on the context with which it is employed. The courts have generally held that unless defined by statute, an administrative body, such as Kaskaskia College, can define the term for their use.

Two factors which are primary and essential among the elements in determining a residency classification are:

  1. Physical presence in the residence for which admission is sought.
  2. Intent to make that location a permanent residence.
