Residency for tuition purposes is determined through information the student submits on the admission application to enroll at Bismarck State College.

Numerous factors are considered when coding a student's residence such as:
  • Birthplace
  • Home/mailing address
  • Parent address
  • Place of High School Graduation
Students who are not in agreement with the residency determination have the right to dispute the residency coding by submitting an appropriate residency application based on legal resident status along with the required supporting documentation.

Residency is reviewed with each new BSC Admissions Application that is submitted.
  • If you are planning to request a change to your residency status you must apply and be approved for the residency change prior to finals week of the current semester. If you successfully change your residency within this time period your tuition amount will be able to be adjusted to your new resident status for the current semester only. If the application and proper paperwork is submitted after the designated date a residency change is approved with an effective date for the next consecutive term. If you have a lapse in enrollment between semesters you will be required to prove residency with any new application that is submitted.
  • Please contact BSC Student Finance Services with any residency questions.
  • Refunds/credits will not be given for terms the student attended prior to approval of the Application for Resident Student Status. Adjustments in tuition rates will only be made for the current term if the application is received by the due date; no previous terms will be adjusted.
The representations made in applications with regard to residency are made for the purpose of determining legal residency for tuition purposes only. All statements are subject to investigation and verification. Any false statement or omission made for the purpose of misleading or defrauding an institution constitutes grounds for expulsion.
