Notification of Social Security Number Collection and Usage by Miami Dade College In compliance with Section 119.071(5), Florida Statutes, Miami Dade College (MDC) issues this notification regarding the purpose for the collection and use of your Social Security Number (SSN). Miami Dade College collects and uses your SSN only to perform College duties and responsibilities. To protect your identity, MDC will maintain the privacy of your SSN and never release it to unauthorized parties in compliance with state and federal laws. The College assigns you a unique student/employee identification number which is used for associated employment and educational purposes at MDC, including the access of your college records. Miami Dade College may collect and/or use your Social Security Number for the following purposes:

Admissions and Registration Federal legislation relating to the Hope Tax Credit requires that all postsecondary institutions report student SSNs to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This IRS requirement makes it necessary for MDC to collect the SSN of every student. A student may refuse to disclose his/her SSN for this purpose, but he/she may be subject to IRS penalties. The Florida public school system uses the SSN as a student identifier. It is beneficial to have access to the same information for purposes of tracking and assisting students in the transition from one educational level to the next. The intent is to establish a comprehensive management database of information which will co-reside with the Division of Public Schools Information Database and the State University System Database to provide integrated information at the state level for educational decision-making. SSNs appear on official transcripts and are used for business purposes in accordance with parameters outlined by the U.S. Department of Education.

Tracking uses are authorized by SBE Rule 6A-10955(3)(e); 1008.386, F.S. and the General Education Provisions Act (20 USC 1221(e-1)). Hope/Lifetime Tax Credit uses are authorized by 26 USC 6050S and Federal Register, June 16, 2000/IRC Section 25A Registration uses are authorized by 119.071(5), F.S. Issuance of Form 1098T for tuition payment reports are authorized by 26 USC 3402, 6051 The College Reach-Out Program (CROP) uses are authorized by 1007.34, F.S.


If you are not degree-seeking, transcripts are not required.

Your college/university transcripts will be evaluated only if you are enrolled as a degree-seeking student. Note: Failure to submit all appropriate transcripts will jeo pardize future enrollment at the College and financial aid eligibility.

Non-U.S. citizen students and/or parents must provide evidence of eligible legal immigration status in the U.S. before being considered for Florida resident fees. Please check with the Registrars Office for more specific information on the non-U.S. citizen categories that are eligible to be considered for in-state fees. International Students and non-U.S. citizens admitted into the United States with the following visas are NOT ELIGIBLE to pay Florida resident fees: B, C, D, F, H4 (if 21 or over), J, M, P and Q. ALL DOCUMENTS SUPPORTING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF FLORIDA RESIDENCY MUST BE DATED, ISSUED, OR FILED 12 MONTHS BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS OF THE TERM IN WHICH THE FLORIDA RESIDENCY-FOR-TUITION-PURPOSES CLASSIFICATION IS REQUESTED. ALL DOCUMENTS MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN THE 100% REFUND DATE FOR THE TERM IN WHICH FLORIDA RESIDENCY IS BEING REQUESTED, OR IT WILL APPLY FOR THE FOLLOWING TERM. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NAME(S) LISTED ON ALL DOCUMENTS MUST MATCH. Students under the age of 24 are considered dependent automatically, unless proven otherwise (see below). Students age 24 and over are considered independent automatically, unless proven otherwise. Students claiming to be independent AND under the age of 24 must provide one of the following proofs of financial independence:  Proof of a sufficient income (excluding any Federal, state, and institutional aid or scholarships) from the previous year (check with the Registrars Office for more information) and not be claimed by another person on their taxes (must show prior year taxes), or Have a dependent child and have received Florida state aid, or Show proof of marriage (marriage license), or Be a veteran of the United States military service (DD214 required), or Be classified as independent by the Financial Aid Office at Miami Dade College, or Be a ward of the state or Project Independence recipient Please note that as per current Florida law, stepparents are not eligible to claim Florida residency on behalf of a dependent student. A parent is defined as the natural or adoptive parent or legal guardian (with a legal court document). All students--including independent as well as dependent students and their parents--are required to submit the Florida residency affidavit and at least two of the below-specified documents with dates that evidence the consecutive 12-month qualifying period. At least one of the documents must be from the first group, and more than two documents may be requested. NOTE THAT NO SINGLE DOCUMENT SHALL BE CONCLUSIVE, AND ALL DOCUMENTATION IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION. EVIDENCE OF TIES TO ANOTHER STATE INVALIDATES THE ELIGIBILITY OF FLORIDA RESIDENCY CLASSIFICATION FOR TUITION PURPOSES. First group (at least one of the two documents submitted must be from the first group) Florida drivers license (licenses from any other state must be relinquished) Florida identification card (if no evidence of ties to another state exists) Florida voters registration card Florida vehicle registration Proof of purchase of a permanent home in Florida that is occupied as a primary residence of the claimant (e.g., warranty deed)  Transcripts from a Florida high school for multiple years (if Florida high school diploma or GED was earned within the last 12 months)  Proof of permanent full-time employment in Florida for at least 30 hours per week for a 12-month period.

The DJJ Address Verification Form shall be considered acceptable documentation for residency determination in conjunction with additional information that demonstrates that the parent or legal guardian has maintained legal residence in this state for at least 12 months prior to the first day of classes of the term for which Florida residency-for-tuition-purposes classification is sought. Students enrolling in colleges or universities that have tuition and fees exempt according to section 1009.25(2)(c), Florida Statutes, shall not be required to submit Florida residency documentation for tuition purposes. THIS INFORMATION IS FOR INITIAL CLASSIFICATION ONLY. ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE AND DOCUMENTATION WILL BE REQUIRED FOR RECLASSIFICATION. Except as otherwise stated in this summary, a person who is classified as a nonresident for tuition purposes may become eligible for reclassification as a resident for tuition purposes if that person (or, if that person is a dependent child, his or her parent) presents clear and convincing documentation that supports permanent legal residency in this state for at least 12 consecutive months rather than temporary residency for the purpose of pursuing an education, such as documentation of full-time permanent employment for the prior 12 consecutive months or the purchase of a home in this state and residence therein for the prior 12 consecutive months while not enrolled in an institution of higher education. The above information serves as a summary of Florida law and related policies/procedures applied by Miami Dade College in determining eligibility of Florida residency for tuition purposes.
