The Certificate of Residency System tracks the certification issued by your home county and entitles you to pay the resident tuition fee when attending a New York State community college outside of your home county. The system tracks each resident account and individual institution payments and vouchers.

The host County Department (depending on local policy) issues Certificates of Residence to permanent County residents who are attending community colleges in other New York State counties. The student must obtain an application from the community college they are planning to attend. Certificates of Residence are valid for a period of one year from the date of issuance. For Students/Applicants: The Certificate of Residency System {CRS) is used by college students to process Certificate of Residency online. The Certificate of Residency System allows students to start the electronic processing of a CRS application online, track progress and allow students and the client to track the processing start to finish in an online portal. For Administrators: The system streamlines the internal processing and tracking of applications in a paperless system, allowing the client to better track the transactions for students and individual schools while streamlining the reconciliation of each application. The system includes verification steps to assure the applicant meets the criteria of certification. Each school and jurisdiction has differing policies and this paperless system allows for the processing and tracking to assure individual student and school accounts are properly balanced. The Certificate of Residency System {CRS) is in production and clients have seen many benefits of the system including, but not limited to, an increased number of Certificates processed and tracked while maintaining existing staffing levels ... savings realized for the processor.
