The Finance Department accepts in person applications and supporting documentation for Certificates of Residence Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00AM and 4:45PM. Once approved, the Certificate of Residence is mailed to the student within 7 - 10 business days.

Please arrive with all documents ready for review. 

You must bring photocopies of all supporting documentation as, once submitted, your documents will not be returned. 

Certificates are issued 60 days prior to each college semester and up to 30 days after the beginning of each semester.

 The burden of proof lies with the student, not the Orange County Finance Department nor a community college. It is the student’s responsibility that the proper proof be provided.
