Procedures for Establishing Residency

Type: Residency
Effective Date: 6/4/2012

Northern Arizona University determines your residency status after receiving your completed application for admission.

The decision is based on information in the application, transcripts, and other documents required for admission. This residency status remains in effect until you:

  • either fulfill the requirements for residency and petition for a change in classification
  • or lose resident status by living outside Arizona with the intent to become a resident of another state.
  • Your residency status is automatically reviewed after you have been absent from NAU for more than three terms and then reapply to NAU.

If you are found to have made false or misleading statements about your residency or tuition status, you are subject to dismissal from Northern Arizona University.

Petition eligible: Yes
Appeal eligible: Yes
