Tuition Classification Information

Your initial residency classification is determined from the information you supply on your application for admission to the university. You may file a petition if you wish to contest out-of-state classification status or if you feel that you have subsequently become eligible for in-state status. Until a decision has been made on your residency, you will be considered a non-resident. If your petition is denied, you may appeal to the University Residency Appeals Board within thirty days. If you do not appeal within the thirty day period, the decision of Admissions and Records is final. If you do file an appeal with the University Residency Appeals Board, the decision of that board is final. There is no further appeal beyond this board.

The fact that you do not qualify for in-state status in any other state does not guarantee in-state status in Nevada, because residency status is governed by Board of Regents policy. Residency classification for tuition purposes clearly places the burden of proof upon you to provide clear and convincing evidence of eligibility.

Information submitted to qualify for in-state classification is subject to independent verification. Individuals submitting false information or falsified supporting documents are subject to both criminal charges and university disciplinary procedures.
