Dear Senator Baumgardner:
SUBJECT: Fiscal Note for SB 102 by Senate Committee on Education
In accordance with KSA 75-3715a, the following fiscal note concerning SB 102 is
respectfully submitted to your committee.
SB 102 would require students enrolling in a technical college to be domiciliary residents
of the State of Kansas for at least six months prior to enrollment for any term or session to be
considered residents for fee purposes. All other persons would be considered nonresidents of the
State of Kansas for fee purposes with the following exceptions:
1. Employees of a technical college;
2. Persons having special domestic relations circumstances;
3. Persons who have lost their resident status within six months of enrollment;
4. Active duty military servicemembers;
5. Domiciliary residents of the state who were in active military service prior to becoming
domiciliary residents upon meeting certain residence duration requirements;
6. Persons who are not domiciliary residents of the state but have graduated from a high
school accredited by the State Board of Education within six months of enrollment and
meet certain other requirements; and
7. Persons who are domiciliary residents of the state whose residence was established upon
recruitment by an employer and meet certain other requirements.
The bill would include language to require the Kansas Board of Regents to distribute State
General Fund appropriations for postsecondary non-tiered course credit hours to community

colleges and technical colleges for students who are Kansas residents; to determine amounts
distributed; and to establish the rates to be used as the state’s share as required under current law.
The Kansas Board of Regents indicates the enactment of SB 102 would reduce the annual
amount of state aid currently distributed to technical colleges; however, a fiscal effect cannot be
estimate as it is unknown how many students would move from resident to non-resident status.
Any fiscal effect associated with SB 102 is not reflected in The FY 2024 Governor’s Budget
