Residence Classification

In accordance with TBR Policy 3:05:01:00 and TTU Policy 1201, every person having his or her domicile in this State shall be classified “in-state” for fee and tuition purposes and for admission purposes. Every person not having his or her domicile in this State shall be classified “out-of-state” for said purposes. The domicile of an un-emancipated person is typically that of his or her parent. Students once classified as “in-state” or “out-of-state” will maintain such classification for fee paying purposes during continuous enrollment.

Changes to residence classification are initiated by the student. A request for review must be submitted to the Office of Admissions at least thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the desired term and adequate information must be provided by the student to warrant a review of resident status. Requests for a first appeal must be made in writing to the Residency Committee within 30 calendar days, absent good cause, of notification from the initial decision of the Residency Classification Officer. Requests for a second appeal must be made in writing to the Vice President for Enrollment Management and Career Placement within 30 calendar days of notification of the first appeal decision. The decision of the Vice President will be final.

If a student classified out-of-state applies for in-state classification and is subsequently so classified, his or her in-state classification shall be effective as of the date on which reclassification was sought. However, out-of-state tuition will be charged for any quarter or semester during which reclassification is sought and obtained unless application for reclassification is made to the admissions officer on or before the last day of registration of that quarter or semester.
