Students enrolling in a statewide program are eligible for the in-county tuition rate if the designated statewide program is not available at the community college in the student's county of residence, or the program at the community college in the student's county of residence has reached the program's capacity. Students enrolling in a CSM statewide designated program must complete additional forms for verification of eligibility. These forms are available through the Admissions Department and must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the payment of tuition.
