Your tuition rate is determined during the admissions process. To change your residency, you must obtain a petition from the Records Office.

  • In-state or Grand Traverse County property owners need to provide a copy of the most recent property tax receipt.
  • Non-property owners must reside at a permanent address in Michigan or Grand Traverse County for a minimum of 6 months taking 5 or fewer credits.
  • Students under 25 years of age should check for additional special requirements.

The Petition for Residency Change and copies of the supporting documentation must be submitted a week prior to the start of the main session.

Completing an NMC Information Change Form will not change your residency unless you are leaving Grand Traverse County.
