"Student Action Required" Residency

Initial Classification

Initial Classification occurs at the time that the student is admitted (or in the term that a student is re-admitted) to Aims Community College and is determined based on the information that the student reports in their Application for Admission.  Failure to answer all questions could lead to initial classification as "Student Action Required" and, if no additional (or if insufficient) information is submitted, then classification would default to "Out-of-State". If that were to occur, the student will be responsible for paying Out-of-State rates until they can submit the necessary documentation and/or forms to clarify their residency status. This must be done within posted deadlines.

After the student's residency status is determined (changed from "Student Action Required" to any other status), it will remain unchanged unless a change is requested and supporting documentation provided.

If a student feels that their initial classification is incorrect and they have not yet begun classes in their first semester (or first semester back) or if a student was set in a "Student Action Required" residency status and they have not begun classes yet, they may update their residency information by requesting the change through your student Workday Account by submitting a STUDENT RESIDENCY: Tuition Classification Addendum request. (Note that there are other residency requests that you may submit regarding certain exemptions to classification. To view all options, please log into your Workday account, and search "Create Request". All residency requests start with the phrase "STUDENT RESIDENCY:") If the student is not sure which request is right for them or would like to pursue an exemption not listed, please contact the Tuition Classification team at
