     York Technical College is required, under guidelines enacted by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, to determine the state residency status of applicants and students for tuition and fee purposes. Tuition, at York Technical College, is assessed on basis of a studentís legal, permanent residence. Students who are not legal residents of the State of South Carolina, or who do not qualify for residency exceptions are required to pay out-of-state tuition rates.

     For permanent residents of South Carolina, confirmation of legal South Carolina residency on the York Technical College Admission Application is acknowledgment that the student meets all requirements of Section 59-112, South Carolina Code of Laws that determine eligibility for in-state tuition rates.

Note: The College reserves the right to require satisfactory proof that the student meets requirements for in-state fees. Students who falsify information regarding their state of permanent residence will be charged the appropriate tuition rate for each term attended and may incur additional financial penalties.
