Verification of Lawful Presence/Tuition Assessment
Since March 12, 2007, PCC students seeking in-state tuition have been required to complete a one-time Verification of Lawful Presence Form (formerly called the Tuition Assessment Form). This enables Pima to comply with state law. Once completed, you won't need to file again while at PCC.
All new and continuing students seeking in-state tuition and registering for credit classes must complete the form and provide documentation.
You will have 10 days from the first day of admission to complete the Tuition Assessment form. If you do not complete and submit the form within this time period a hold will be placed on your record. You will not be able to view your grades or receive a transcript until the form is processed.
Completing the form
- Print the Verification of Lawful Presence Form (formerly the Tuition Assessment Form), fill it out and sign the document.
- Read these additional instructions.
If you are seeking in-state tuition or publicly funded financial aid (Step 2 on the form), you must provide documentation to support your application. Acceptable documents are listed on second page of the form.
Submitting the Form
Bring the form and required documentation to any campus Student Services Center. Pima requires the original signed form. Fax copies are not acceptable.
If you do not live in Pima County, please call (520) 206-4640 and a staff member will assist you.
