Waubonsee charges tuition and fees based on your residency

Special Residency Classifications

Students who live out-of-district may qualify to have out-of-district charges waived under the special residency classifications listed below. Students who qualify for these classifications are not considered district residents. If you have questions, please contact the Registration and Records office.

Proof of Residency

Students may be required to furnish legal evidence of their residency. If required, a student must submit a total of three documents (one from each category below) to the Registration and Records office at the Sugar Grove, Aurora Downtown, Aurora Fox Valley or Plano Campuses. Each document must list the student's name and residential address (not a post office box), and at least one of the documents must be dated within the last 30 days. All three documents must be submitted at the same time. If you have any questions, call Registration and Records at (630) 466-2370.
