2.  Document your identity. 

Bring one primary form of identification, or send a copy with your Application for Admission form. Acceptable primary forms of identification are listed on the Requirements page.

3. Certifiy that you are eligible for in-state-tuition (if applicable) 

If the residence address you write on your Application for Admission form is in Alabama and you intend to remain there while at Northeast, you are in-state and you do not have to complete this step.

See Tuition for the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition amounts.

If you are not in-state, you will be charged at the out-of-state tuition rate unless you can certify a substantial connection with the State of Alabama. To apply for in-state status, complete and submit the Residency Certification form with your application:

Conditional enrollment: If an item in this checklist is lacking, the applicant may be allowed to begin classes conditionally for one term.
