Residency for Tuition Purposes
In Arizona, as in all other states, tuition at the State’s publicly-supported universities is lower for in-state resident students than for out-of-state non-resident students. This reflects the fact that state universities are supported financially by the state’s taxpayers. The rules outlined in this policy for determining classification or reclassification as a resident or non-resident for tuition purposes reflect Arizona law and Arizona Board of Regents (“ABOR”) policy. At the time of their admission, Northern Arizona University classifies all students as either a resident or non-resident. Students must be admitted and properly registered for classes using the tuition classification initially determined by the University prior to petitioning for residency reclassification for that term.
