Students can petition for exception

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.

Students can appeal

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.
