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 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:
- Physical presence in the residence for which admission is
- Intent to make that location a permanent residence.
