Purpose: Use this document as a reference for entering residency data in ctcLink.
Audience: College staff responsible for maintaining student information
You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:
- ZC CC Residency Processing
- ZZ CC Residency Processing
You must also set these SACR Security permissions:
If you need assistance with the above security roles or SACR settings, please contact your local college supervisor or IT Admin to request role access
Add another row to enter a new Effective Term for a student's Official Residency Data. For example, if an Out of State (OS) student's residency questionnaire was approved, add a row with the new effective term. Change the residency determination to In-State (IS).
Tuition must be recalculated if a student's residency changed in a previous term. If you do not have the security needed to calculate tuition, contact Student Financials. NOTE: The consequences of changing residency, particularly with correct history, can adversely affect students' tuition.
Monitoring Residency Changes
In January, ctcLink started tracking manual updates to student residency information. Several audit queries have been developed to help you identify training opportunities and review changes. Residency auditing means the system is now tracking changes made to the Residency Data page and who made those changes.
Residency Data and OAAP: OAAP does not log changes in the audit table. If there is no row for the admit term, it adds one. It does nothing if there is already a residency row for that Admit Term.
- QCS_AD_OAAP_RESIDENCY. Identifies automatic residency determinations made when students submit their OAAP application. This query lists the questions the student was asked, their answers, and the auto-determination resulting from their submission.
- QCS_CS_RESIDENCY_W_AUDIT_ALL (Residency w Audit - All Rows ) and QCS_CS_RESIDENCY_W_AUDIT (Residency w Audit Outer Joined). Identifies who performed changes to your student’s residency data. These will help you restore a record to its previous state when it was changed in error, and identify what users have been working with a student’s residency.
- QCS_AD_RES_CHG_NO_JOB (Res Chg by OPR w/o job@inst). Identifies rows made by a user who doesn’t have a job at your institution when the change was made. This can help find cases where an inattentive user accidentally changes residency for the wrong college.
- QCS_AD_RES_FOR_OPR_NO_SACR (All Residency by OPR no SACR). Identifies changes made by a user who doesn’t currently have security at your institution.
- QCS_AD_ALL_RES_FOR_OPR (All Residency Rows by Operator). Identifies all changes made by a particular user. If you determine a staff member didn’t understand residency regulations and made changes they shouldn’t have, this query can help you backtrack to figure out which student records need to be researched. Alternatively, if you realize a user has inadvertently made changes to another institution’s residency, you can use this query to figure out which institutions you need to communicate with. It can also be used to ensure new staff members are making the proper changes.
- OAAP Application Report. The OAAP Application Report includes a preliminary residency determination.
- QCS_AD_ADM_APPL_RES_DET_SUM - Summary of residency determinations from admissions applications.
- QCS_CC_CURRENROL_RES_CITZ - This will be used to contact students verifying residency status.
