It is the policy of the University of Baltimore to grant in-state status for admission, tuition and charge differential purposes as defined by the University System of Maryland Policy on Student Residency Reclassification for Admission, Tuition, and Charge-differential Purposes.
An initial determination will be made by the Offices of Admission. The decision is made at the time a student’s application for admission is under consideration. The determination made at that time, and any determination made thereafter, shall prevail for each subsequent term until the determination is successfully challenged in a timely manner.
A student may request a re-evaluation of residency status. This is done by filing an Application for Change in Residency Classification (hereinafter referred to as application) with the Chair of the Campus Residency Committee for review by the Campus Residency Committee. A student must meet the requirements for in-state status and submit a completed application, including all required documents, by the last published date of registration for the term the student wishes to be classified as in-state.
A determination of in-state status is valid only if a student actually enrolls in the term in question. Determinations which are made in cases where a student does not actually enroll are not valid for a subsequent term (with respect to which all requirements must be independently satisfied and a new and timely application submitted).
The burden of proof rests upon the student. Failure to provide complete and timely documentation and responses to requests for information may result in a denial of the re-evaluation. The university reserves the right to request additional information and documentation from the applicant over and above what is required in the application. In the event incomplete, false or misleading information is presented, the campus may revoke an assignment of in-state status in addition to other disciplinary actions it may initiate.
