Residency

Costs at Delta are shared by the students, the taxpayers in Delta College's district and the State of Michigan. Property taxes paid by residents of Bay, Midland and Saginaw counties supplement student tuition and state aid for in-district status students. That is why in-district students' tuition is the lowest.

Residency classifications

In-District Status
Legal resident of Bay, Midland or Saginaw counties.

Out-of-District Status
Legal resident of Michigan, but not of the above three counties.

Out-of-State Status
International students (including au pairs) and all others not classified within those above

A legal resident is one whose permanent, primary residence is where the student intends to return, whenever absent from college. 

In-district criteria

For tuition purposes, an in-district student is a permanent resident who can provide legal proof of residence within Bay, Midland or Saginaw counties for at least three consecutive months, immediately preceding the first day of the semester in which the person plans to enroll.

Exceptions considered are:

  • The legal residence of a student under age 18 is that of the parent or legal guardian, regardless of where the student may have been living for the previous three months.
  • The student marries an individual who qualifies as an in-district resident of Delta College's district.
  • The person is an employee of a business or industrial firm within Delta College's district AND the employer, by written agreement, agrees to pay directly to Delta all tuition and fees of the sponsored student for employer-approved classes. If the employer is not directly paying Delta for the student’s tuition and fees, the student will be assessed the appropriate out-of-district or out-of-state tuition rate.
  • In-district students whose families or spouses move out of Delta College's district during the time they are enrolled may retain their residency status as long as they maintain continuous enrollment. Student must complete the Petition to Remain In-District application each semester.
  • A permanent alien who has filed the Declaration of Intention to become a U.S. citizen, and who can provide proof of Delta College district residency for the previous three consecutive months, may petition for in-district status.
Proof of in-district residence
You may be asked to verify your residency status at registration. The following examples are types of documents which are considered in determining proof of in-district residency:

  • A valid Michigan driver’s license or Michigan Secretary of State I.D. card or valid Michigan motor vehicle registration in student’s name indicating a permanent address within Bay, Midland or Saginaw counties.
  • A property tax receipt from Bay, Midland or Saginaw counties.
  • A current voter registration card indicating an in-district address.
  • Other legal documents, such as court-issued guardianship papers.
 Veterans

Any individual using educational assistance under either Chapter 30 (Montgomery GI Bill® – Active Duty Program), Chapter 33 (Post-9/11 GI Bill®) of title 38, United States Code, and/or the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship (38 U.S.C. § 3311(b)(9)) who lives in the State of Michigan while attending Delta College (regardless of his/her formal state of residence) will receive in-state tuition rates. Any individual using Veteran Educational Benefits possessing a Department of Veteran Affairs Certificate of Eligibility will receive Delta College in-district residency classification.

Interested in coming back to Delta?

So you have taken classes before, but it's been a while and you're not sure what to do. We'd love to have you back, and are happy to show you the steps to getting on track. 

Reapply

If it has been more than two years since you attended classes, you will need to reapply through the Admissions office.

Academic Fresh Start

So you took classes over two years ago and know you can now do better? We know life happens and want to help you achieve your goals. You can apply for an Academic Fresh Start by submitting a request to Delta's Registration office. You've got this!

How it works

  • You must complete a minimum of six credits before your grade point average will be recalculated.
  • You are required to meet with an academic advisor before submitting your Academic Fresh Start application.  
  • All courses taken at Delta will remain on your permanent record; however, all course grades prior to re-enrollment will be converted pass/no credit grades. 
  • You can only be granted an Academic Fresh Start once. 
  • Regardless of the number of passing grades resulting from your Fresh Start, a maximum of 12 credits of P grades may be applied towards graduation requirements. 

SUCCESS TIP: Register Early

Some classes fill up fast – the earlier you register, the more likely you are to get your chosen classes and schedule.
