Appealing Residency Classification

Students may appeal residency by submitting an Application for Consideration of State Residency for Tuition Purposes with the Office of the Registrar, along with documented evidence in support of residency. The application and supporting evidence will be submitted to the Tuition Classification Appeal Board for determination. To be considered, the appeal and all supporting documents must be submitted by the 15th calendar day of the term.

Reclassification shall be effective for the semester in which the appeal application was filed and for each semester thereafter, so long as the circumstances upon which the reclassification was based remain unchanged. Appropriate refunds shall be made following such reclassification. The Tuition Classification Appeal Board shall consist of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Vice President for Administration and Business Affairs and the Vice President for Student Services and Enrollment Management.

Additional information regarding residency classification for tuition purposes is located in the Office of the Registrar's Policies and Procedures section.
