The rules and regulations for establishing residency for tuition purposes are defined by the Arizona Board of Regents, which is authorized by the Arizona Legislature and Arizona Revised Statutes (15-1801 through 15-1807) to provide classification for a tuition differential between resident and non-resident students.
These rules and regulations are subject to change without notice.
For residency inquiries, contact the following departments based on your student classification.
There are certain exceptions to the general residency rules.
For any semester, if a student applies for classification as a resident student, but is classified as a nonresident and believes that the classification is erroneous, then the student may request a review. See: Exceptions to Residency Requirements for further information.
Procedures are in place for students whose petitions have been denied and who wish to appeal. Please contact the Registrar's Office for further information.
