New York State Public Health law requires that all students attending college in the state who were born on or after January 1, 1957 and who are enrolled for six or more chargeable contact hours file with the College proof of immunization against measles, mumps and rubella. ALL students regardless of age who are enrolled for six or more credit hours must fill out the meningitis survey which is available online and through the Health Center. Failure to comply with this law within 30 days from the start of the semester will result in a student’s disenrollment from classes, without refund of tuition and fees.

To be eligible for the resident tuition rate, a student must have one year’s legal residency in New York State and six months in the County of Nassau. The legal residency of unmarried students under 21 is deemed to be that of their parents. To check on what documents may be provided to proof residency, see our Residency Requirements page.
New York State students from counties other than Nassau County may have the non-residency tuition rate waived by submitting a Certificate of Residency from their home county fiscal office prior to payment of tuition and fees. The submission of a valid Certificate of Residency qualifies students who reside in counties other than Nassau for the Nassau County resident tuition rate.
Applications for a Certificate of Residency are available in the Bursar’s Office, Tower Lower Level and Student Financial Affairs, Tower 5th floor. For students commencing study in the fall semester, the certificate will cover a full year, including fall and spring semesters and summer sessions. Certificates of Residency must be renewed each year. Individuals on student visas cannot qualify for a Certificate of Residency.
