Residency Reclassification for In-State Tuition

Generally, a student’s residency classification is determined at the time of application for admission.

Any student classified as an out of state resident, who feels that he or she qualifies as a resident of Connecticut in accordance with Connecticut General Statute 10a-26, may file this application (Download Application for In-State Tuition (pdf)) at any time to request a change of classification.

As a reminder...

  • You may or may not be called for an interview.
  • You will receive notification of your application status within 1-2 weeks. 
  • If approved, reclassification will not be retroactive to prior semesters.   
  • The Student Code of Conduct prohibits the act of providing false information to school officials.
