Residency Requirements

Students enrolling at Iowa Lakes Community College are classified as residents or non-residents for admission, tuition and fee purposes.

If you have been classified as non-resident and believe you should be eligible for resident tuition, you may apply for reconsideration of your case.

The Director of Records and Registration may require written documents, affidavits, and other evidence considered necessary to establish your residency. This may include rent receipts, voter registration information, drivers license, motor vehicle registration, or other documents. Residence for college enrollment and fee purposes may be different from residence for other purposes.

The burden of establishing exemption from non-resident status is with the student.  Further information on residency classification is available from the Records and Registration office: 712-362-7922.
