Residency for Tuition Purposes

The University of Alabama residency guidelines are established by Alabama Code 16-64. Students are governed by the Board of Trustee Non-Resident tuition policy otherwise known as Board Rule 202 which was approved December 5, 1997.

The term "Alabama resident" for tuition purposes may differ from other definitions of Alabama residency. To be classified as a resident for tuition purposes, a student must meet the guidelines for residency as defined by the Alabama Code and University of Alabama Board of Trustees Rule 202.

The "Application for Residency Reclassification" must be completed and notarized and must accompany any documentation provided for consideration.
