Residency Processes and Forms

Residency Process

Completed forms along with all supporting documentation can be submitted at the Registrar’s Office at Bear Central in the Campus Commons, or mailed to:

Office of the Registrar
Attn: Tuition Classification Officer 
University of Northern Colorado
Campus Box 50
Greeley, CO 80639

Make sure your signature is notarized by a Notary Public. There are notaries available in the Registrar's Office.

Petitions are generally reviewed within 5-10 days and petitioners are notified of the decision by mail (Bear Mail or UNCO email only). If additional information is required, the petitioner will be emailed at his or her Bear Mail address.

Decisions made by the Tuition Classification Officer may be appealed to the Tuition Classification Appeal Panel. Appeals must be made in writing within ten business days after the date the denial letter was mailed to the petitioner.

The decision made by the Tuition Classification Appeal Panel is final.

Residency Forms

The tuition classification statute places the burden of proof upon the petitioner to provide clear and convincing evidence of eligibility and to meet the required deadlines. Tuition classification decisions are not transferable from one institution to another.
