RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS AND INTERDISTRICT AGREEMENTS


Illinois Central College adheres to current residency requirements set forth by the Illinois Community College Board and the State Board of Education. For students under the age of 24, please note that changing your address does not automatically change your residency. Students who are legal residents within District 514 are afforded the current in-district tuition rate. Please refer to the map and the zip code listing to determine your residency status. If your legal residence is within a split district zip code, your residency will be out-of-district at the time you apply to Illinois Central College. Please provide a copy of your most recent property tax bill to Enrollment Services so a final determination can be made for your residency status.

Residency Statuses

In-District Resident: A student who graduated from a high school within District 514 and has legal residency within District 514 at the time of application to Illinois Central College, or is a dependent of a person who has legal permanent residence within District 514 at the time of the student’s application to ICC, will be classified as an in-district student. Students age 24 years or older may also be classified as in-district students by establishing residency within District 514 regardless of the high school from which they graduated.

Out-of-District Resident: A student who graduated from a high school outside of District 514 or has legal residency outside of District 514 at the time of application to Illinois Central College will be classified as an out-of-district student. Students dependent upon a person whose permanent residence is outside of District 514 but within the state of Illinois are considered to be out-of-district. However, the out-of-district tuition rate may be adjusted based on the employment status of the student or the individual claiming the student.

Please contact Enrollment Services at (309) 694‑5606 or stop in Room L211 to discuss your situation.

Out-of-State Resident: A student who graduated from a high school outside the state of Illinois or has legal residency outside the state of Illinois at the time of application to Illinois Central College will be classified as an out-of-state student. However, the out-of-state tuition rate may be adjusted based on the employment status of the student or the individual claiming the student. Please contact Enrollment Services at (309) 694-5606 or in Room L211 to discuss your situation.

Out-of-Country Resident: A student who is not a legal, permanent resident of the United States as defined by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) will be classified as an out-of-country student. Dependents of foreign employees working full-time within District 514 will be classified as out-of-country students. However, the out-of-country tuition rate may be adjusted based on the employment status of the individual claiming the student. Please contact Enrollment Services at (309) 694-5606 or stop in Room L211 to discuss your situation.

International Student: A student who has obtained permission from their home country to study at a college or university within the United States will be classified as an international student. These students will hold either an F-1 Visa (for degree-seeking students) or an M-1 Visa (for certificate-seeking students). Proof of the ability to pay the out-of-country tuition rate and all additional fees and costs related to studying in the United States must be provided before a student is accepted as an international student. For more information regarding study opportunities at ICC, please contact the International Education Department at (309) 694‑8817 or (309) 694‑8947.

If you are an out-of-district or out-of-state student under the age of 24 and would like consideration for in-district residency status, please complete the residency questionnaire and submit the form along with the acceptable supporting documentation as outlined on the form to Enrollment Services in Room L211 on the East Peoria Campus. The addresses that appear on your supporting documentation must match and must be the same as the address on your student record at Illinois Central College. The residency questionnaire can be found online at icc.edu/admissions/files/ICC-Enrollment-Residency-Questionnaire.pdf.

Illinois Department of Children and Family Services Dependents: Effective 1/1/2017 any student who is (i) currently under legal guardianship of Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, or has recently been emancipated from the department and (ii) has previously met the 30-day residency requirement of the district but had a placement change into a new community college district will be classified as a resident of the district they are currently residing in.

These students will not be required to meet the 30-day residency requirement and will receive in-district tuition. Proof of current in-district residency from the student, caseworker, other personnel of the department, student’s attorney, or guardian ad litem appointed under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987 is required. Please contact Enrollment Services at (309) 694-5606 or stop in Room 211 on the East Peoria Campus to discuss your situation.

Homeless Student: If you are a homeless student, please provide us with documentation from the homeless shelter in which you are residing. New documentation will be required each semester until the residency questionnaire can be completed and you are able to provide the necessary documentation to establish permanent in-district residency status. Please contact Enrollment Services at (309) 694-5606 or stop in Room L211 on the East Peoria campus to discuss your situation.

Cooperative Educational Agreements (CAREER)

Working cooperatively with other Illinois two-year colleges, Illinois Central College participates in the Comprehensive Agreement Regarding the Expansion of Education Resources (CAREER Agreement). The intent of this agreement is to expand the career and technical educational programs that are provided to students within District 514, as well as offering our programs to Illinois students from outside District 514. The Comprehensive Agreement Regarding the Expansion of Education Resources (CAREER Agreement) reduces the student's tuition obligation to the current in-district rate of the receiving institution.

The agreement works in two ways:

1. A District 514 student can enroll in a career and technical education curriculum (program) that is not offered by Illinois Central College but is offered by a participating two-year college.

2. A non-District 514 student can enroll at ICC in a career and technical education curriculum (program) that is not offered by their home community college district.

The form can be submitted online at icc.edu/admissions/enrollment/enrollment-forms. This form must be completed each academic year.
