Welcome to Residency for Tuition Purposes! You're in the right place if you want to change status from non-resident to resident to adjust your tuition. Here's a list to get you started:

  1. Take the Residency Quizzes to learn if you are eligible for residency for the current processing term.
  2. Read the information about the type of residency you qualify for. There are multiple residency applications; view Applications at a Glance for a comparison chart.
  3. Not eligible now? Read the Future Residency page for steps that you MUST take by September to be eligible next Fall.
  4. Apply for residency no later than the 30th day of the term. Military residency applicants have until the last day of instruction for the term.
