To determine your residency status for tuition purposes, please review the information below.
In-State Residency: You, the student, must meet at least one of the following requirements to be considered "in-state" for tuition purposes:
- Resided in the state of Oregon at least ninety (90) continuous days prior to the first day of the term.
- You or a member of your immediate family, hold title to property as a permanent Oregon residence.
- Filed an income tax statement with the Oregon Department of Revenue for the most recent reporting year.

- A dependent of parents or legal guardian who has established residency within Oregon.
- A resident of one of the following states: Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, and California
Out-of-State Residency: Students will pay out-of-state tuition if they list their state of legal residence as a state other than Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Nevada, Montana, or California. This excludes students who have provided documentation to establish In-State residency as indicated by this policy.
To apply for In-State residency, complete BMCC's Proof Of Oregon Residency web form below.
International: Students who are citizens of another country and are attending BMCC on a F-1 or M-1 student or other visa will pay the international tuition rate.
Guidelines: Students who graduate from a high school other than in Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Nevada, Montana, or California within the last two years will be considered out-of-state residents and may be required to provide proof of Oregon residency.
Residency criteria requirements apply to readmission of students who have established residency in another state since their last enrollment at the college. This will be checked at the time of readmission to the college.
Students attending on F-1 or M-1 Visa’s do not qualify for in-state residency.
Students that establish their 90-day residency requirement during their current term of enrollment will be granted in-state residency status for their following term of enrollment for the academic year in which they applied for residency. (Example: student meeting 90-day residency requirement during fall term 2018 will be eligible for in-state residency winter term 2019 or their next term of enrollment for the 2018- 19 academic year).
Alaska residents who wish to receive the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend while attending BMCC should consult their state agency prior to applying for in-state residency as it may affect their ability to receive these funds.
