Residency is determined at the time of formal admission to the university on the basis of information included in the university application for admission. Determination of residency is governed by the statutes and policies of the State of Washington. Students who do not establish residency will be assessed out of state tuition.

Students seeking a change in residence classification must file a Residence Questionnaire and evidence of Washington domicile with the University. Residency is determined by several factors in addition to physical presence in the state of Washington and is based on documentary evidence submitted.
