The college admissions process can be overwhelming to prospective students. The Andrews Center staff specialize in providing accurate information to assist with Florida residency classification, enrollment, and registration. After students have submitted high school diplomas, SAT/ACT, or GED scores, the advising specialist will assist them with the appropriate placement testing. The student must complete the FAFSA application to determine their eligibility for grants and loans in the form of financial aid

Florida Residency

The purpose of establishing residency is to determine whether a student will pay in-state or out-of-state tuition for a given academic term. To make the appropriate determination, the student must provide clear documentation that supports permanent legal residence in Florida. The Andrews Center staff are prepared to aid and assist with the completion of the Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes Form.
