Residency documents must be submitted before the first day of classes. Documents must be dated, issued or filed 12 months before the first day of the term and be valid for 12 consecutive months with no gaps.
This is important because it determines whose documents you will need to gather to prove residency – yours or your parent’s or guardian’s. In Florida, students who are under the age of 24 now, or who will be under the age of 24 when classes begin, are assumed to be dependent students. Use the lists below to determine your dependency status. The documents needed to prove your dependency status are in addition to the Tier 1 and 2 documents required to prove residency. Please use our FAX cover sheet and be sure that your name and student ID# are included on every page faxed.
If any of these describe your situation, you are considered independent. Complete the Residency Affidavit. Provide the document(s) listed below and Tier 1/Tier 2 documents in your name.
If you cannot prove that you are independent by meeting one of these points, you may write a letter documenting your general circumstances to petition that SPC treat you as an independent person for establishing residency for tuition purposes. Your letter must be detailed, compelling and must document the conditions and reasons that you feel you should be treated as an independent person. Please address the letter to:

You can also FAX the letter to 727-341-7143.
