Lakeland is required by law to classify student residency as follows:

  1. Resident of Lake County: to qualify for this tuition category, a student must have lived in the state of Ohio for at least one (1) year, and in Lake County for at least six (6) months.
  2. Ohio resident outside Lake County: a student must have resided in the state of Ohio for at least one year or has met one of the exceptions to the general rule of residency to qualify for this tuition category.
  3. Out-of-state or international students: individuals who cannot furnish proof of their classification in either of the above categories are charged out-of-state tuition rates. International students pay the out-of-state rates for the duration of their attendance.

All applicants and current students requesting a change of fees to in-state or in-county MUST provide a valid Ohio driver's license and appropriately dated proof of residence in one of the following forms:

  • Canceled rent checks (for each month of residency).
  • Property tax receipts.
  • Rental or lease agreements.
  • Real Estate title/deed of ownership of property.
  • Utility bills - water, gas or electric only (providing name and address are shown).
  • Voter registration card.

A change to a Lake County address does not automatically change residency status. Students must submit acceptable documentation to the Registrar for review and approval.

Fees will ONLY be adjusted prior to or no later than the first day of the term. No mid-semester adjustments will be made. If documentation is presented after the start of the semester the next term will have the updated residency code listed.
