Tuition Residency

A student’s tuition rate is determined by where that student maintains his/her home residence. Tuition residency is established for each student as of the date of enrollment, and may change from term to term. Students are required to maintain a current address of residence with the Registrar’s Office.

Based on his/her home residency, a student is classified into one of the following four categories for the purpose of establishing the appropriate tuition rate:
  • Hunterdon/Somerset County resident – an individual who maintains a verifiable residence in either Hunterdon or Somerset County, New Jersey.
  • Out-of-county resident – an individual who maintains a verifiable residence in New Jersey in neither Hunterdon nor Somerset County. (Note: An out-of county resident who provides written verification, from his/her employer, of current employment in either Hunterdon or Somerset County receives a $30 per credit hour reduction from the standard out-of-county resident rate.)
  • Out-of-county chargeback resident – an out-of-county resident whose home county pays part of his/her RVCC tuition through a county chargeback arrangement.
  • Out-of-state resident – an individual who does not maintain a verifiable residence in New Jersey.

Residency Change Procedure

Students who change a home address are required to complete a Residency or Telephone Information Change Form and submit it to the Office of Enrollment Services in-person.

Students who have a home address in Hunterdon or Somerset County and move to another location within either county are required to notify Enrollment Services of this change. A student who resides outside of the two counties and is moving to an address in Hunterdon or Somerset County is required to notify the College and provide proof of in-county residency. Two documents that validate the new address, including one photo ID from a government agency, must be submitted.

All residency requirements must be submitted prior to the first day of the term for tuition to be adjusted. If residency documents are submitted after the term begins, tuition billing will not be adjusted until the following term.
