For tuition purposes, residency status is determined at the time of application for admission to Crowder College based upon the student’s legal permanent address or the domicile where they plan to return or reside. The residence of a minor student under the age of 21 will be the residence of the parents/legal guardian(s). There are three residency classifications:
2.1 Residency Status
2.1.1 In-District Students whose permanent home is within the main Crowder College district (Neosho, Diamond, Seneca, East Newton and McDonald County school districts. Students (spouses, parents or guardians) owning property in the district are considered in-district residents. Full-time active duty military personnel stationed on a Missouri military base, their spouses and dependents are considered residents of the district. The residency status of recently discharged veterans will be based on legal residency at the time of induction into military service or on residency established during service.
2.1.2 Out-of-District Students whose permanent home is located outside of the college district’s boundaries.
2.1.3 International Students whose permanent home is in a foreign country at the time of registration
2.2 Change of Residency
The burden of proof of establishing residency rests on the student. A request for a change in status must be submitted in writing to the Admissions Office with appropriate evidence or documentation of residency change. All requests must be received by the Admissions Office no later than the second week of the petitioning semester. Otherwise, residency status does not change during the semester. Change of residency status will only affect future terms and is not retroactive for previous semesters. In accordance with the Due Process policy, students may appeal decisions with the Vice President of Student Affairs.
2.3 Evidence of Domicile
2.3.1 Acceptable Documentation 188.8.131.52 Proof of residence for 12 prior consecutive months within the district or state through lease agreement or deed.
184.108.40.206 Marriage Certificate and proof that new spouse owns property within the district or state.
220.127.116.11 Documentation reflecting in district or state residency and presence within the district or state of Missouri for the purpose of retirement, full time employment due to company relocation or transfer, or professional practice or business ownership.

If a student does not attend a seated course or fails to participate in an online course for 14 consecutive calendar days, they will be administratively withdrawn from the course. A student may request re-instatement in the course by contacting the Academic Affairs Office. A student may only receive one re-instatement per course per semester.
Students should be aware that an administrative withdrawal may reduce the amount of financial aid they receive, may reduce future aid and could necessitate repayment of aid already received.
An administrative withdrawal will not be initiated after the last day to withdraw for each course.
