Residency for Tuition Purposes
Wisconsin Statutes Extracts Regarding Residency for Tuition Purposes
EXTRACT FROM SECTION 36.27(2), WISCONSIN STATUTES OF 2005 RELATING TO EXEMPTION FROM NONRESIDENT TUITION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN - OSHKOSH
Initial residency for tuition purposes decisions are made by the Office of Admissions, based on the provisions of Wisconsin Statutes 36.27(2) which govern residency status for tuition purposes, at the time that the student applies to the University. The general rule is that you must be a bona fide resident of Wisconsin for at least 12 months prior to enrollment to be eligible for in-state tuition.
If you have questions about your residence classification after reading the extract of Wisconsin Statutes 36.27(2), you may contact the Registrar's Office. Graduate Students may also contact the Office of Graduate Studies. If you appear to meet the residency guidelines, you may be asked to provide documentation, in some cases notarized, before your status can be changed.
Any student has the right to submit an appeal to their residency determination. Please contact the Registrar's Office to discuss your situation and/or request an Appeal Form.
