If you are a New York state resident, you must submit a valid certificate of residence every academic year in order to receive the in-state tuition rate.

Registering for classes creates a financial obligation with the college. The financial responsibility agreement (FRA) explains your financial liability with the college. In order to confirm your registration, you are required to complete and submit the FRA each semester by logging into Self-Service Banner and viewing your student bill.
