  • International students are not eligible to apply for Florida residency.
  • Given limited and specific conditions, state law does allow students to petition for a change in residency status after residing in the state for 12 months. Moreover, Florida law sets a high standard for reclassification, and the process requires numerous date-specific documents. It is to your benefit to carefully review the information regarding reclassification.
