(i) A Tennessee driver license;
(ii) A Tennessee motor vehicle registration;
(iii) Proof of established employment in the state; or

An application for In-State classification may be obtained from the Admissions and Records Office or at any Roane State location. All questions should be directed to the Admissions and Records.
Proof of U.S. Citizenship or lawful presence in the United States will be required from any student who receives In-State tuition.
* Dependent shall mean a person whose parents have not entirely surrendered the right to the care, custody and earnings of such person and who are still under obligation to support or maintain the dependent person. A person the age of 18 or older is considered to be independent by the state. If a person 18 or older is to be considered dependent, the parent must provide a copy of a federal income tax return claiming the dependent.
