All information pertaining to academic fees and dates may be subject to change after the posting of this Bulletin. IT IS A STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO VERIFY THE ACCURACY OF ALL FEE INFORMATION.

Residency Determination

Section 36.27 of the Wisconsin Statutes sets forth the conditions under which a student qualifies as a resident of Wisconsin for tuition purposes. Students are classified as residents or nonresidents at the time of admission or enrollment. This determination remains unchanged until such time as the student presents or the Office of Graduate Studies obtains information that warrants changing a student’s residency classification.

A change to WI resident for tuition purposes is not an automatic procedure. The student must request a change and submit the necessary forms and information to provide satisfactory proof of bonafide residency in Wisconsin. The required forms and information can be obtained by contacting the Graduate Studies Office, Dempsey Hall 345, (920) 424-1223.
