In-State Tuition Classification
A Petition for In-State Tuition Classification form is used for students whose residency status has been determined as either Out-of-State or W.U.E. (not "Student Action Required") and who believes they meet the qualifications of In-State residency status. This form can be submitted for review to the Registration team up to 90 prior to the start date of the term that the student is petitioning for a change in. Please visit our Deadlines page for more information.
In-State residency status is based off of the "qualified person" –either the student or the parent or legal guardian of a student– and requires that the qualified person prove domicile (legal, primary residence) in Colorado for 12 months prior to the term that the student plans to attend. More information regarding "qualified persons" can be found here.
Per Colorado Law, changes to residency status for a term in question must be made prior to the student's earliest course start date in that term. Changes requested after that date will be denied or individually reviewed to see if extenuating circumstances applied.
In-District Tuition Classification
Students who live in the Aims tax district (most, but not all, of Weld County) may qualify for the In-District tuition rate – which is lower than the In-State tuition rate. Students who move into the Aims Tax District may request the tuition discount by filling out an In-District Tuition Classification request form. Changes will be subject to posted deadlines.
