We have appointments available for consultations on Residency for Tuition Purposes and AAS Selective Admissions.  Please be aware that Highline’s lot has limited space and factor in time for finding parking.  If you arrive to your appointment more than 10 minutes late, we will work with you to reschedule.

Residency for Tuition Purposes

Gum-Lai Ross
Admissions Adviser, Residency for Tuition Purposes

Residency for tuition purposes is different than U.S. residency or even Washington state residency for other purposes. Gum-Lai can help you navigate and work within the rules set by the state of Washington. She guides students who are working to establish, or to evidence, their status.

We return all emails and all phone messages.

Please do not leave multiple messages or contact us multiple ways. It actually slows down, not speeds up, our response rate.  A returned call counts whether we reach you, leave a message, or tried but cannot leave a message (for example, because your voice box is full, your phone has been disconnected or you did not leave your area code).
