Persons must be domiciled in Arizona for one year (12 full months) and be domiciled in Maricopa County for at least 50 days to qualify as a Maricopa County resident.

*Rates are set according to Arizona Revised Statute. Students from any other county in Arizona are considered Maricopa County residents (in county), due to a reciprocal arrangement with that county. Reciprocal agreements allow for in‐county tuition rates for residents of all Arizona counties, except Apache or Greenlee counties, without an Out‐of‐County Residence Affidavit. For more information, visit the common pages.

**According to Arizona Revised Statute, 15-1802 F, "A person who is a member of an Indian tribe recognized by the US Department of the Interior whose reservation land lies in this state and extends into another state and who is a resident of the reservation is entitled to classification as an in-state student." Therefore, unclassified and out of state surcharges do not apply to such students.

+The educational consortium sponsored by Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) allows out-of-state students to take courses offered by MCCCD and pay tuition of 150% of in-state tuition in accordance with state statute. Likewise, Maricopa County residents may attend institutions in other states and pay 150% of the resident tuition rate. This rate also applies to distance learning classes taken by eligible non-resident out of state students.
