Out of City Residents Forms – Certificate of Residency

If you reside in New York State but outside of the 5 boroughs of New York City, you will also need to submit a Certificate of Residency.  Please review the link below of the relevant county you reside in and follow the instructions.

Nursing Eligibility Requirements

For the Fall 2009, the City University of New York was informed by the Nurses Service Organization (NSO), the leading provider of malpractice (liability) insurance for nursing students, that it is prohibited from covering individuals who do not have legal status in the United States. As a result the City University of New York cannot allow admissions of undocumented students into the clinical component of CUNY's nursing programs. Please click here for more details

Undocumented and Out-of-State Student

A law provides in-state (resident) tuition benefits to certain undocumented students. You may qualify for the lower in-state tuition if you meet one of the following eligibility criteria:

  1. you attended an approved New York State High School for two years and graduated from an approved New York State high school and applied for attendance at CUNY within 5 years of receiving a New York State High School diploma, or;
  2. you attended an approved New York State program for General Equivalency Diploma (GED) exam preparation, received a GED issued within New York State, and applied for attendance at CUNY within 5 years of receiving a New York State General Equivalency Diploma; or
  3. you were enrolled in CUNY in the Fall 2001 semester or quarter and were authorized by CUNY to pay tuition at the resident rate. Thus, a student who attended CUNY in the Fall 2001 semester and paid the resident rate does not have to satisfy either condition 1 or 2 above.
    In addition, students without lawful immigration status must file an affidavit (notarized) stating that they have filed an application to legalize their immigration status or will file such an application as soon as they are eligible to do so.
