Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get my residency changed from out-of-state to in-state?
Your residency status is determined at the time of your admission to MSU Denver. Your classification is based on criteria established by the Colorado Tuition Classification Law, CRS S23-7-101 (1973). Once set, your residence status remains unchanged unless satisfactory evidence of a change is presented.
You’ll need a Petition for In-State Tuition Classification form, and the evidence requested on the form, by the deadline published for each semester in the Class Schedule.
Check with an admissions officer on the specific requirements. General requirements can be found in the Catalog.
