Residency Deadlines

Deadline Information

The submission period and deadline dates to submit a Petition for In-State Tuition Classification are published several years in advance. These are very strict deadlines for submission. 

Completed petitions and required documentation may be submitted to the Office of the Registrar as early as 90 days prior to the term for which the individual desires a change in classification, but no later than the published deadline for that term ( 2 weeks prior to the first day of classes).

Specific deadlines for the upcoming terms are listed below:
