The resources listed here describe the various ways in which you may be eligible for in-state (resident) tuition under the provisions of Utah state law and University of Utah Institutional Policy.  These documents explain the general rule of the law and exceptions that may allow you to waive the time requirement and apply for residency immediately.  Review these materials carefully.

Non-residents eligible for reclassification must submit a complete reclassification, certification, or military form by the applicable term deadline with all required supporting documentation.
