All classifications of residency are determined at the time of application to MACC. Requests for change of residency must be completed before the end of the 100% refund period for the semester (refer to the Academic Calendar for semester refund dates). Any requests received after the 100% refund period will not be in effect until the following semester. See all Residency Guidelines in Policy Handbook section G.270.

An international student is a student who is in the United States on an approved, educational visa. International applicants must meet specific, international admission requirements as specified by MACC.

Residents from the following states/counties will be allowed to attend MACC at the Other Missouri Resident Rate:

Iowa – Davis County, Van Buren County, Lee County

Illinois – Hancock County, Adams County, Pike County

If a student believes their current resident status is different based on the guidelines above, it will be the responsibility of the student to complete the Change of Residency Status Application and provide legal documentation verifying their change of residency. MACC will not make the change automatically. If a question arises concerning the resident status of the student, it will be the responsibility of the student to prove permanent residency. Any proof that the student can provide will be evaluated on an individual basis.

Determination of Missouri Resident Status:

1. Attendance at an institution of higher education shall be regarded as a temporary presence inside or outside of Missouri; therefore, a student neither gains nor loses resident status solely by such attendance.

2. Either of the following shall be sufficient proof of domicile (permanent residence) in Missouri:

     A. Presence in Missouri for a minimum of the immediate past 12 months and proof of intent to make Missouri a permanent residence for an indefinite period; or

     B. Presence in Missouri for the purpose of retirement, full-time employment, full-time professional practice, or conducting business full-time and proof of intent to make Missouri a permanent residence for an indefinite period.

3. Criteria used in determining proof of intent to make Missouri a permanent residence for an indefinite period include:

     A. Continuous presence (immediate past 12 months) in Missouri during those periods not enrolled as a student; and

     B. Full-time employment in Missouri (provide copies of 12 months of pay stubs or bank statements showing pay deposits); or

     C. Ownership of a home in Missouri (provide copies of Property Deed or Property Title); or

      D. Marriage to a Missouri resident and sharing a home with the resident spouse in Missouri (provide copies of marriage license and proof of residency as outlined below); or

      E. Copies of two of the following documents indicating student’s name and current address:
       1. Voter Registration Card
       2. Employment Verification
       3. Lease or Rental Agreements
       4. Written statement of intent (contracts) to establish domicile in Missouri
       5. Automobile Registration Card
