Florida Residency

  • money iconThe tuition you pay is determined by your residency classification. Florida residents pay a much lower tuition rate than out-of-state residents.

    Did you receive a residency checklist? 

    After logging into MySPC, if your TO DO list mentions:

    Residency Checklist
     CODE  ACTION 
    2RSDOC Submit a Residency Affidavit and two valid documents to your home campus
    2RSIND Submit proof of independence documents to your home campus
  • How new students prove Florida residency

    If you are a Florida resident, you can easily prove residency when you apply online to SPC by providing valid ID numbers for two of the following documents, issued at least 12 months before the first day of your classes:

    • Florida Driver’s License or Florida ID
    • Florida Vehicle Registration
    • Florida Voter’s Registration

    If you are a dependent student (you are under the age of 24), you will need to provide documents of a parent or legal guardian.

    If you can’t provide two of the items above during the online application process, you will be classified initially as a non-resident. Unless you apply to change your residency status before the first day of classes, you will be classified as a nonresident and charged the higher tuition rate.

  • How returning students prove Florida residency

    If you are a returning student that has not been enrolled in credit classes at SPC in the past three terms, the same questions will be asked when you register online.

    You must provide updated information to confirm that your Florida residency is still valid or you will be classified as a nonresident and charged the higher tuition rate.
