In accordance with S1009.21 Florida Statutes, Rules 6A-10.044 and 6A-20.003, Florida Administrative Code, and the Board of Governors Residency Regulation, the College of Graduate Studies is required to adhere to specific procedures in making determinations for residency reclassification for students who were initially classified as non-Florida residents for tuition purposes. Staff in the College of Graduate Studies cannot make exceptions to the rules set forth by the state nor can staff make exceptions based on financial hardship or extenuating circumstances.
The burden of proof is on the student applying for reclassification to present clear and convincing documentation that supports permanent legal residency in this state for at least 12 months rather than temporary residency for the purpose of pursuing an education.
