  • In-state residency is based on UVM Residency PolicyIn order to be considered for in-state tuition, you must complete the Application for In-state Status. The final decision on residency is made by the residency office. Regardless of your responses, it is the student’s responsibility to understand their final residency determination before they register. The residency office may request additional information before determining residency status. All Applications for In-State Status should be received no later than the last day of the Add/Drop period for the semester for which in-state status is sought. All applications received after the Add/Drop period will be considered for the following semester for which the student is enrolled.For information on filing for in-state status, contact the Residency Office, Registrar’s Office, 85 South Prospect St., (802) 656-8515.Information is also available online under Policies & Procedures on the Register’s webpage.Teachers who live in Vermont but may not yet fulfill the requirements for Vermont residency, or, teachers who are contracted to work in a Vermont school and live outside of Vermont eg: Massachusetts, New York, or New Hampshire, may apply for in-state tuition by completing the Continuing and Distance Education’s Outreach Scholarship form.
