18A:64A-23. a. Each county college shall, to the extent its facilities will permit accept students who are residents of any other county in the State.

b. Any person desiring to enroll in a county college as a nonresident student shall apply to the chief fiscal officer of his county of residence for a certificate of residence showing that said person is a resident of said county. The chief fiscal officer of each county shall, upon application and submission to him of satisfactory evidence of such residence, issue said certificate provided that (1) the county does not sponsor a county college or contribute to the support of a county assisted college, or (2) the local county or county assisted college certifies that it does not offer the particular course or program of study desired by the applicant, or (3) the local county or county assisted college certifies that it cannot admit the applicant into a particular course or the desired program of study, pursuant to criteria established by the Commission on Higher Education. If the chief fiscal officer of a county refuses to issue such a certificate, the applicant may appeal to the board of chosen freeholders of the county within 10 days of the receipt of notice of such refusal. The board of chosen freeholders shall make a determination after a hearing, upon 10 days' notice to such chief fiscal officer and the applicant, and such determination shall be final and binding on the county.

Upon his registration for each college year, the nonresident student shall file with the college such a certificate of residence issued not earlier than two months prior thereto and such certificate of residence shall be valid for the current or next academic year succeeding the date of issuance, as the case may be.

c. Any county college so admitting nonresident students shall charge to and collect from each county within the State which has issued a certificate or certificates of residence pursuant to subsection b. and on the basis of which such nonresident students are attending such college, the sending county's share of the operating expenses of such county college, as certified by the board of school estimate and as paid by the receiving county for resident students, computed on a per full-time equated (FTE) student basis and multiplied by cost ratios as determined by the State Treasurer pursuant to N.J.S.18A:64A-22 for various instructional categories. Any county college shall additionally charge and collect the sum of $1.00 per credit hour for each student so enrolled to compensate for minor capital costs of the college.

d. Within 10 days after the commencement of each college term, the county college shall charge the county's per FTE student share of operating expenses of such college for that term as aforesaid to each county which has issued a certificate or certificates of residence pursuant to subsection b., on the basis of which nonresident students are attending such county college. The amount so charged to the county issuing the certificate or certificates shall be paid within 30 days of the date of the billing.
