Appealing Out-of-State Residency Classification

The initial residency classification is made by the Office of Admissions based on the information provided on the application for admission. Failure to answer all questions could lead to initial classification as "out-of-state." After the student's status is determined, it remains unchanged in the absence of satisfactory evidence to the contrary.

Students who have initially been denied eligibility for in-state tuition may use CMU’s Residency Update Form to appeal this decision.

Contact the Office of Admission at 970.248.1875 or for additional information.
