The Kaskaskia College Board of Trustees has authorized the administration to implement guidelines, consistent with existing law, for classifying students as Illinois in-district, Illinois out-of-district, Out-of-state, and International. Residence is considered to be that permanent domicile established for a purpose independent of attendance at a school as a student.

The word residence is generally interpreted to have no fixed meaning in the law, but may have a variety of meanings dependent on the context with which it is employed. The courts have generally held that, unless defined by Statute, an administrative body can define the term residence.

Residency is first determined according to the circumstances that exist at the time the application is filed for college admission. An applicant may be required to submit additional information to support the residence declaration on the application.
