Residency Definitions

Monmouth County Resident – A person with a permanent Monmouth County address who has lived in New Jersey for at least one year prior to the first day of instruction. Admission priority is given to Monmouth County residents. Armed Forces personnel and their dependents stationed in the county are considered Monmouth County residents.

Out-of-County Resident – A resident of a county other than Monmouth, who has lived in New Jersey for at least one year prior to the first day of instruction. The tuition rate as well as the maximum amount per term is double that for Monmouth County residents. However, if you attend Brookdale because your county does not have a community college, or because the community college does not offer the program you wish to pursue, you may be eligible for full or partial “charge back”, a system by which you pay in-county tuition rates. Contact Brookdale’s Admissions Office or the Admissions Office of your local community college.

Out-of-State Resident – A person who has not lived in New Jersey for at least one year prior to the first day of instruction. The tuition rate as well as the maximum amount per term is double that for out-of-county residents.

Out-of-Country Resident – A person in the United States for purposes other than that of establishing permanent residence, with non-immigrant status as deigned by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. Persons in this category may need to file an I-20 student visa form. Check with the Admissions Office for regulation guidelines. Tuition rate as well as the maximum amount per term is double that for out-of-county residents.
