Change In Domicile and Involuntary Reclassification

  • A student who changes his/her domicile from Pennsylvania to another state must promptly give written notice of the change to the Residency Certification Officer. The student will be reclassified as of the date of the change. A student who fails to inform the Residency Certification Officer of changes in facts or circumstances which might affect his/her residency classification will be responsible for the difference between resident and non-resident tuition.
  • Any student who provides false information or deliberately conceals the facts in connection with a residency application or appeal will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action. In addition, any student found eligible for resident status based on false information or error is subject to retroactive reclassification as a non-resident and may be responsible for the payment of non-resident tuition and fees for the period during which he/she was classified as a resident.
  • A student may challenge an involuntary reclassification under the procedures described herein. NOTE: The University reserves the right to conduct audits regarding Pennsylvania resident classification and may make appropriate adjustments in the classification of students.
