Do you have to live in the community to go to that community college?

I am planning on moving to another city which is about 8 hours away. Do you have to be apart of that community for awhile in order to go to that community college?

  • No, you will just show your proof of residence. You can go to any community college, but you would pay the higher tuition rates for being a non-resident, which are by far much more reasonable than university tuition.

  • In my county you have to be a resident of the county before you can go to the community college. You may want to the check with the admissions department. I'm sure they'll know that answer : )

  • In California you must be a resident (and show proof of residency) for 6 months or more to get the local tuition rate. If not then you have to pay like, 3x the amount of the locals, but you can go to any community college so long as you are accepted.

  • nope.

    if you are coming from out of state though you need to get your ID changed and bring proof of address so they can see that you are living there.
