Residence Status

The legal residence of each applicant for admission and registration at Clarendon College will be determined by the Director of Admissions. For purposes of tuition, students will be classified as in-district residents, out-of-district residents, or as out-of-state/non-residents. A student's residency classification will be based on the following:

  1. A student is considered an IN-DISTRICT resident if he/she has resided in Donley County for at least 12 months prior to the student's first registration at Clarendon College for other than educational purposes.
  2. A student is considered a BRANCH MAINTENANCE TAXING DISTRICT resident if he/she has resided in Childress or Gray County for at least 12 months prior to the student's first registration at Clarendon College for other than educational purposes.
  3. A student is considered an OUT-OF-DISTRICT resident if he/she has resided in the State of Texas for at least 12 months prior to the student's first registration at Clarendon College for other than educational purposes and is not a resident of Donley County.
  4. A student is considered an OUT-OF-STATE / NON-RESIDENT student if he/she has NOT resided in the State of Texas for at least 12 months prior to the student's first registration at Clarendon College for other than educational purposes.

The Board of Regents of Clarendon College has authorized the waiver of the difference in the rate of tuition for nonresident and resident students for a person, or his or her dependents, who owns property which is subject to ad valorem taxation by the Clarendon College District (Donley District). The person, or his or her dependents, applying for such a waiver shall verify property ownership by presentation of an ad valorem tax statement or receipt, issued by the tax office of the Clarendon College District (Donley District), or by presentation of a deed, property closing statement, or other appropriate evidence of ownership of property which is subject to ad valorem taxation by the Clarendon College District (Donley District).

The responsibility of registering under the proper residence classification is that of the student. If there is any question regarding the student's correct residency classification, it is the responsibility of the student to discuss this matter with the Director of Admissions.
