Residence Qualifications


Students enrolling at Kirkwood are classified as residents or nonresidents of Iowa, or as international students, for admission and tuition purposes by the college’s One Stop office.

The college definition requires 90 consecutive days of residency within the state for a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (green card) prior to the start of enrollment. Students who come to the state of Iowa for the purpose of attending college will remain at nonresident status. Residency status is established at the start of the student's program and does not change until completion of the program.
