Appendix VI - Residency Policy  

Policy

The residence status of students is determined at the time of admission to the college. Students will be considered in-county residents if they or the person who contributes more than one half of the student’s financial support maintain legal domicile in Charles County, Calvert County, or St. Mary’s County and have done so for a period of not less than three months prior to the date of admission to the college.  Some non-immigrant visa holders and students without a valid status are not eligible to claim in-county residency, and they are subject to out of state tuition rates.

Students will be considered in-state residents if they or the person who contributes more than one half of the student’s financial support have maintained legal domicile in other parts of the state for not less than three months. Otherwise, the student shall be considered an out-of-state resident. Once residency requirements have been met, the student may petition to change the residency decision by completing a Residency Status Change Form as well as providing the appropriate Proof of Domicile documentation to the Admissions Department. Forms are available in the Admissions Department and online at www.csmd.edu/apply-register/forms and should be returned to the Admissions Department.

Domicile

For tuition purposes, domicile may be defined as a person’s permanent place of abode, where physical presence and possessions are maintained and where he or she intends to remain indefinitely; or the permanent place of abode of any person or persons contributing more than one half of the student’s financial support during the most recently completed year.

Proof of Domicile

At the time of admission, students will indicate their residency status. If information is received that would contradict or call into question the validity of the residency status, the student will be asked to provide proof of domicile and registration will be restricted until the question is resolved.

The college shall consider any or all of the following as factual bases for determining residency and will require two forms of evidence for substantiation:

  1. Ownership or rental of local living quarters

  2. Substantially uninterrupted physical presence, including the months when the student is not in attendance at the college

  3. Pay stub with address or savings/investments statements

  4. Payment of Maryland state and local piggyback income taxes on all income earned, including income earned outside the jurisdiction

  5. Registration to vote in the state and county

  6. Registration of a motor vehicle in the state, with a local address specified, if the person owns such a vehicle

  7. Possession of a valid Maryland driver’s license, with a local address specified, if the person is licensed anywhere to drive a motor vehicle

  8. Military orders

Change and Appeal of Residency Classification

A student shall be provided the opportunity to request a change in residency classification by submitting the Contact Information and Residency Status Update Change Form found on the Admissions Forms webpage and supporting Proof of Domicile evidence sited above. This form and documentation should be returned to the Admissions Department not later than the start date of the course(s) for which the residency status change is being requested. Residency changes are not retroactive for prior semesters attended. Change of physical address does not constitute automatic change of residency to in-county.  The Contact Information and Residency Status Update Form and evidence must be submitted to change residency to in-county.  A change of address to an out of service area (not within Charles, Calvert, or St. Mary’s Counties) will result in automatic residency change to in-state residency.

Nonresident Programs

Statewide Program

If any student is a resident of this state and enrolls in an instructional program that has been designated by the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) as a statewide or regional program, the student shall pay only the student tuition and fees payable by a resident of the county that supports the community college. 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. A list of statewide programs can be found in Appendix IX. An up-to-date list can be found on the MHEC web site at www.mhec.state.md.us.

Health Manpower Program

A Maryland resident from outside Calvert, Charles, or St. Mary’s counties who enrolls in an instructional program that has been designated by the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) as a health manpower shortage program, may be eligible for reduced tuition rates - pending State funding. Out-of-county students enrolling in a Health Manpower Shortage Program are required to pay out-of-county rates at the time of registration. If the State of Maryland funds this program, the College will apply State funds to a student’s account and issue any appropriate refunds in accordance with College policies and procedures.  A list of designated programs, effective in January 2010, is included in Appendix X. An up-to-date list can be found on the MHEC web site at www.mhec.state.md.us. Students applying for designated programs must contact the Admissions Department for application information.

Out-of-State Nursing Students

Out-of-state nursing students may be considered residents for tuition purposes under the conditions set forth in COMAR 13B.07.02.03.G.

Contract Training

A student enrolled in a course contracted between the college and a business or industry that maintains facilities, operates, or does business in the state may be considered a Maryland resident or county resident for tuition purposes.

Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014, as amended by Public Law 114-315 Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2016, and Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020.

As amended 38 U.S.C 3679(c) and sections 3510 require the following individuals be charged a rate of tuition not to exceed the in-state rate for tuition and fee purposes:

A veteran using educational assistance under either Chapter 30 (Montgomery G.I. Bill ® - Active Duty Program), Chapter 31 (Veteran Readiness and Employment), or Chapter 33 (Post-9/11 G.I. Bill ®), of title 38, United States Code, who lives in the state of Maryland, in which the institution is located (regardless of his/her formal State of residence).

A dependent or spouse using transferred Post-9/11 G.I. Bill ® benefits (38 U.S.C. § 3319) or Chapter 35 (Dependents’ Educational Assistance Program [DEA],who lives in the state of Maryland,  in which the institution is located (regardless of their formal State of residence).

Anyone using benefits under the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship (38 U.S.C. § 3311(b)(9)) who lives in the state of Maryland,  in which the institution is located (regardless of their formal State of residence).

Anyone using benefits under Chapter 30 (Montgomery G.I. Bill ®- Active Duty Program) who lives in the state in which the institution is located (regardless of their formal State of residence).

Anyone using benefits under Chapter 31 (Veteran Readiness and Employment) who lives in the state in which the institution is located (regardless of their formal State of residence).

Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, Section 103 of Public Law 115-407

In accordance with Section 103 of Public Law 115-407, College of Southern Maryland will not:

  • Charge late fees on the portion of tuition and fees billable to the VA while VA tuition and fees payment is pending;
  • Withdraw the student for non-payment of the portion of tuition and fees billable to the VA while VA tuition and fees payment is pending;
  • Restrict student access to college facilities for non-payment on the portion of tuition and fees billable to the VA while VA tuition and fees payment is pending;
  • Require the student to access student loans or other financial assistance for the purpose of paying the portion of tuition and fees billable to the VA while VA tuition and fees payment is pending;

To qualify, by or on the first day of the enrollment period a student may be required to:

  • Produce the VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) by the first day of class;
  • Provide a written request to be certified (Benefits Request Form);
  • Provide additional information needed to properly certify the enrollment as described in other institutional policies.

Foreign Nationals

An individual immigration status will not preclude award of Maryland residency for tuition purposes if the individual has the legal capacity to establish domicile in Maryland.

Non-Immigrant Status

Some non-immigrant students are subject to out-of-state tuition rates. Students with an F-1 visa must enroll for a full-time course of study, which is a minimum of 12 credits/billable hours each semester. Prospective students with a temporary visa status such as J or B (visitors, business, exchange, etc.) should contact the Admissions Department to have their applications approved before registering for classes. Non-immigrant students other than F-1 international student visa holders may take as many credit courses as their college admission status permits, as long as the semester begins and ends within the duration of stay indicated on the I-94 in their passport. They are subject to the out-of-state tuition rates.

Appendix VII - Academic Eligibility Guidelines for Financial Assistance Recipients

The U.S. Department of Education requires the college to establish standards and monitor the academic progress of students receiving Title IV federal financial assistance. All forms of federal, Maryland, and college financial assistance are subject to the satisfactory academic progress (SAP) standard, outlined as follows. This policy includes three key elements: achieving an overall grade point average, completing your program within a maximum time frame that may not exceed 150 percent of the length of the student’s program, and successfully completing the necessary credits each academic year.

  1. Students must complete (associate’s degree or certificate) requirements within a maximum time frame based on their credits attempted (150%). Credits attempted include AU, I, IP, F, FX, NA, P, W, WD, and WE. Example: A two-year degree program that requires 60 credits to complete is 60 x 1.5 = 90 credits; a one-year certificate program that is 32 credits/maximum time frame to complete is 32 x 1.5 = 48 credits.

NOTE: What does this mean for students changing academic programs? Example: You change your program from AA in business requiring 60 credits to AA in biology requiring 60 credits. You need 20 credits to receive your biology degree. At the time you changed the program, you have 85 credits attempted. Based on the 150% rule, you have 5 credits of eligibility, 60 on your first AA program in business x 1.5 = 90 credits; 90 credits minus 85 = 5 credits remaining of financial assistance eligibility. Prior to changing a program, consult with a financial assistance advisor on your campus.

  1. In order to maintain satisfactory academic progress and continued eligibility for financial assistance, the time frames set in (1) require students to successfully complete 67% of attempted credits each academic year while maintaining the required minimum cumulative grade average (GPA), according to the chart below. Successful completion means a grade of A, B, C, D, or P. Audited classes are counted towards your total number of attempted credits and do count towards your completion rate.

NOTE: When the college calculates satisfactory academic progress, it includes all grades/classes and does nothing special for academic clemency (AC). Example: Official CSM transcript of 18 credits-6 are AC; GPA is figured on 12 credits SAP is calculated on all 18 credits attempted, which includes the 6 credits that are marked AC.

  1. The student must meet minimum grade point average (GPA) requirements based on the number of credits attempted.  Please see the chart below:

  1. Students enrolled in an associate’s degree program will be evaluated once each academic year. This will take place at the end of the spring semester. Students enrolled in a certificate program will be evaluated at the end of the fall and spring semesters. The student’s cumulative record will be used to determine satisfactory progress, not just the most recently completed semester. Semesters during which the student did not receive financial assistance will also be considered in determining satisfactory progress. If the student does not meet the minimum standards outlined above, his/her eligibility for financial assistance will be lost.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Example

Susan, a freshman at the college, enrolled in an associate’s degree program and attended full-time (12 credits per semester) during the past academic year. Her transcript reads as follows:

*equivalent credit

Susan’s cumulative GPA at the end of Spring 2022 is 1.50.

Thus far in her studies at the college, Susan has attempted 24 credits (12 in the Fall plus 12 in the Spring). Of those 24 attempted, Susan has successfully completed (received a grade of A, B, C, D, or P) 12 credits. To calculate her completion percentage:

12 credits completed = 50% completion percentage
24 credits attempted

Susan has not met the minimum GPA requirement of 1.75 based on 24 attempted credits and she has not met the minimum completion percentage requirement of 67%, and would therefore be considered to be making unsatisfactory academic progress. Susan would be ineligible to receive further financial assistance until she increased her completion percentage to 67% or higher and raised her cumulative GPA to the minimum standards based on the total number of attempted credits.

Appeal Process

A student whose academic progress is deemed “unsatisfactory” may appeal that determination to the Appeal Committee. The SAP appeal form and documentation of mitigating circumstances claimed by the student is required. Students can request the SAP appeal form by meeting with a Financial Assistance Advisor or can be downloaded from the CSM website at www.csmd.edu/costs-aid/scholarships-financial-aid/forms. Under most circumstances appeals may be granted for the low GPA or less than 67% completion but not for the 150% rule.

Students who lost their eligibility to receive financial assistance and have regained the required 67% credits attempted vs. credits earned ratio and/or have regained the required minimum cumulative GPA may request reinstatement of financial assistance eligibility in writing (such as e-mail) to the Financial Assistance Department.

Students who have their SAP appeals approved are considered to be on Financial Aid Probation and may be required to meet with an Academic Advisor to complete a Financial Aid Success Plan.  Students on Financial Aid Probation will have their SAP status reviewed every semester and if they are not meeting the terms of the appeal, the appeal will be revoked and the student will lose eligibility for financial assistance at CSM until such point as they are meeting the minimum SAP standards.

Effect of Course Withdrawals, Incompletes, Repetitions, or Non-Credit College Prep Courses on Satisfactory Progress

  • Withdrawals (“WD” grade): Withdrawal from a course will be considered unsatisfactory completion of that course.

 

  • Withdrawals (“WE” grade): Withdrawal from a course due to extreme circumstances, as defined by a national emergency. This course is not included in financial aid eligibility calculations.

 

  • Incomplete grade (“I” grade): An incomplete grade will be considered unsatisfactory completion of that course. If the student satisfactorily completes all outstanding work to make up the incomplete grade and later receives a satisfactory grade, the student’s financial assistance status will be re-evaluated accordingly.

 

  • Course repetition: Repeating a course counts as attempted credits, but does not count as completed credits. It also counts toward the 150% maximum time frame.

 

  • *** Non-credit College Prep courses: College Prep courses will be considered in the same way as any other courses (using their credit equivalencies) in calculating satisfactory progress. Students may not receive financial assistance for more than 30 equivalent credits of college prep courses. These credits will not affect the 150% time frame to complete their degree. Example: AA in business equals 60 credits. However, you must take 15 credits in college prep courses to assist you in obtaining that degree. So you would have 60 x 150% plus the 15 credits of college prep course work.

 

  • Audits: Changing a credit to an audit will affect your financial assistance. Audited classes are considered attempted credits for financial assistance eligibility purposes.

 

Return of Federal Funds Policy

When a student completely withdraws from the college while receiving Federal Title IV financial assistance, the Financial Assistance Department must determine what portion of the student’s semester federal financial assistance (not including Federal Work-Study funds) will need to revert to the federal programs. A student is considered to be completely withdrawn from CSM when they withdraw from all their classes and are not currently enrolled in any additional classes. The department must use a statutory return of federal funds policy, required by the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended most recently in 2008.

The statutory formula requires the Financial Assistance Department to determine what portion of federal aid disbursed has been “earned” and what portion must be considered “unearned.”

Calculation of Title IV Financial Assistance Earned

The college must first determine the percentage of assistance earned by the student at the point in time when she/he withdraws completely. Up through the 60 % point in time in the term, the percentage of assistance earned is equal to the percentage of the term completed as of the day the student withdraws. If the withdrawal occurs after the 60 % point, the percentage of aid earned is 100 %.

Calculation of Title IV Financial Assistance Not Earned

The amount of assistance not earned by the student is calculated by subtracting the percentage earned (when less than 60 %) from 100 %. That percentage is then applied to total amount of grant and loan assistance that was disbursed for the semester.

Difference Between Amounts Earned and Amounts Received

If the student has received more grant or loan assistance than the amount earned, the unearned funds must be returned to the Title IV programs by the college or the student or both.

Responsibility of the College

The college must return to the Title IV programs the lesser of the following:

  • the unearned amount of Title IV assistance; or

  • the institutional charges (tuition, fees, and, in some cases, books) incurred for the semester, multiplied by the unearned percentage of Title IV grant and loan assistance.

Responsibility of the Student

The student returns unearned Title IV assistance minus the amount of the college returns. The U.S. Department of Education does not allow the college or the student any discretion regarding non-institutional costs. In most cases, when a student receives Title IV assistance greater than the amount of institutional charges, and completely withdraws from the college, they will have to return some of those federal funds.

Special considerations: When a student (or parent in the case of PLUS loans) is required to return a portion or all of loan proceeds, the calculated amount will be repaid according to the terms of the loan. In addition, the Department of Education recognizes that the neediest students have up-front school expenses and limited resources to meet those expenses. Therefore, students who must return grant funds themselves (over and above what the school returns) are given an additional consideration: the student’s grant repayment is reduced by half.

Order in Which Federal Funds Must Be Returned

Whether the college or the student or both must return federal funds, there is a prescribed order as to which federal program receives returned funds first, second, third, etc. That order is as follow

  1. Unsubsidized Direct Loan

  2. Subsidized Direct Loan

  3. Direct PLUS Loan

  4. Pell Grant

  5. Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant

  6. Federal SEOG 

  7. TEACH Grant

 

Return of Federal Funds Example

John, a freshman at the college, enrolls for the fall semester and incurs institutional charges of $1,260. He received a Federal Pell Grant of $1,000 and a Federal Direct Loan of $1,260. He withdraws from the college after completing 37 percent of the semester.

  1. Percent of unearned Title IV aid: 100% - 37% = 63% unearned

  2. Amount of unearned Title IV aid: $2,260 total Title IV aid x 63% unearned = $1,424 unearned

  3. Amount of aid the college must return to the Title IV programs:

The college must return the lesser of the unearned amount of Title IV aid ($1,424 shown above), or the semester charges incurred, multiplied by the unearned percentage (63 percent shown above): $1,260 total semester charges x 63 percent unearned = $794 unearned.

The amount of $794 is the lesser of the two calculated unearned amounts, and the college must return this amount. In accordance with the return of federal funds formula, this amount will reduce the Federal Direct Loan that John borrowed for the fall semester.

As a result of this return of funds to the Title IV programs, John will owe $794 to the college for unpaid institutional charges.

  1. Amount of aid the student must return:

The student must return the difference between the amount of unearned Title IV aid and the amount returned by the college: $1,424 unearned aid amount - $794 returned by the college = $630 to be returned by the student.

John will repay $466 of the required $630 to his Federal Direct Loan lender according to the terms of his loan. The remaining $164 amount that John must return is Federal Pell Grant funds, subject to the 50 percent reduction consideration given to the student; therefore, John will have to return $82 to the Pell Grant Program.

Appendix X - Disclosure of Student Information and Rights of Students Under FERPA

Disclosure of Student Information

The following categories of student information are designated as public or directory information. The institution may disclose such information for any purpose, at its discretion.  As permitted under FERPA Section 99.37(d), the College limits the release of directory information for legitimate educational purposes or in accordance with the Solomon Amendment.

Category I: name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date and place of birth, photograph, major field(s) of study, dates of attendance, campus location, degrees, certificates, letter of recognition, and awards received (includes deans’ list), class standing, most recent previous educational institution attended and student ID number.

Category II: participation in officially recognized activities, and sports, weight, and height of members of athletic teams

Forms:
Students may prevent disclosure of Category I and Category II information. Forms to prevent disclosure of this directory information can be obtained at the Registrar’s office for Category I and at the Athletics Department for written notification must be received in the Student Life and Athletics Department for Category II information.

Rights of Students Under FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. They are:

  1. The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day that the College of Southern Maryland receives a request for access. Students should submit to the Registrar written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The Registrar will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected.

  2. The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the Registrar to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. The student should write the Registrar, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the Registrar decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the Registrar will notify the student of the decision and advise the student of their right to appeal the decision. Students wishing to appeal a decision should follow the General Student Complaint Procedure found in the Student Policy Guide. FERPA does not address issues involved with assigning grades for academic work. Students interested in appealing grades should follow the Reevaluation of Academic Work procedure found in the Student Policy Guide at www.csmd.edu/about/policies.

  3. The right to consent to disclosure of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One of the exceptions permits disclosure without consent to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by CSM in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position; a person or company with whom CSM has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, distance learning service provider, other colleges or universities or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing their tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill their professional responsibility. Upon request CSM discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll.

  4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the College of Southern Maryland to comply with the requirements of FERPA. Written complaints should be sent to: Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20202-5920 (www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/index.html)

Appendix XI - Student Complaint/Grievance Procedure

The General Student Complaint Procedure provides students with a method to address complaints against a student, a faculty or staff member, or college policies or practices.

Before beginning formal procedures, the involved parties should try to settle the dispute through discussion. If no resolution is reached, a written statement of the complaint must be sent to the vice president of Student Equity and Success within 21 days of the dispute. For a copy of the procedure, or for assistance in resolving a complaint, refer to the Student Policy Guide or contact the Vice President of Student Equity and Success.

Appendix XII - Statewide Instructional Programs

The Maryland Higher Education Commission has designated instructional programs at Maryland community colleges as statewide programs. See Appendix I for enrollment procedures. In addition to providing greater opportunity to additional Maryland citizens, the implementation of statewide programs allows for more effective planning for the placement of new instructional programs, particularly in high-cost specialties. Students enrolled in a program designated as statewide pay the in-county tuition rate.
