Tuition is based upon the student's legal residency. If an applicant or student wishes to petition to change his/her residency status, he may complete and submit an Application for Reclassification of Residency.

Looking for Records?

The Office of the Registrar (Records Office) is the administrative body responsible for enrollment and degree verification, auditing a course, transcript request, etc.
