Eligibility for In-State Tuition

Your domicile determines whether you are eligible for in-state tuition and state grants.

This information is determined when you fill out your Application for Admission so be careful to use complete information.

Most TCC students are Virginia domiciled. If you live and work in Virginia, you are likely eligible for in-state tuition, but there are some specific criteria that can be used for determination.

If you feel you have been incorrectly placed as out-of-state student, there is an appeal process to regain in-state eligibility.

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) provides general, descriptive information about establishing Virginia domicile in order to qualify for in-state tuition and state grants. An overview of the basic requirements for demonstrating and/or establishing Virginia domicile is below. For more detailed information, please visit SCHEV’s website.
