Residency Reclassification Services handles students’ requests to be reclassified as in-state residents for tuition purposes. Students who were initially classified as out-of-state residents by Undergraduate or Graduate Admissions, and subsequently believe they meet the requirements for in-state tuition and fees may apply for in-state residency. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Graduate Admissions, and the Office of the Registrar adhere to policies established by the Board of Regents regarding residency classification of students for tuition purposes.

The student shall notify Residency Reclassification Services at the University of Maryland College Park, in writing, within fifteen (15) days of any change in circumstances which may alter in-state status. Failure to do so could result in retroactive charges for each semester/term affected.
