  Camden Graduate Catalog 2021-2023 Academic Policies and Procedures Student Residency for Tuition Purposes Procedure  


A. The Initial Determination: At the time an individual initially applies for admission into any undergraduate or graduate college of the university, the respective admissions office will determine an admitted applicant's resident status for tuition assessment. The determination made at this time shall prevail for each succeeding semester unless a change is authorized as provided hereinafter.

B. After the Initial Determination: The status of residency for tuition purposes of students continuing in a college of the university will be determined by the appropriate registrar's office (Camden registrar, Newark registrar, New Brunswick registrar, or Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences [RBHS] registrar). The determination made by the registrar will either conform to the initial determination of the admissions office or reflect a change as provided hereinafter.

C. Request for a Change of Status: Requests for a change in residency status will be accepted no later than 60 days after the start of the term for which the changed status is sought. All evidence deemed appropriate by the adjudication official pursuant to New Jersey Administrative Code 9A:5-1.1-1.2 must be filed by the petitioner in accordance with the time limit specified in the preceding sentence, but in no case later than 30 days from the date of submission of the Residency Analysis Form. Failure to comply with the provision may void the petition for the semester in question. If, based on the information submitted in the request, the student qualifies for resident tuition assessment, such change will relate only to the current and subsequent semesters.

D. Appeals: Appeals from the initial determination and any determination made after a request by a student for a change in residency status will be accepted no later than 30 days after the date of notification of any such determination that is appealed. Appeals for all newly admitted and continuing students should be forwarded to the appropriate campus vice chancellor for enrollment management's office. These officers will respond to the student within 30 working days of the receipt of the appeal in the appropriate office. Appeals from these determinations must be submitted centrally to the associate vice president of enrollment management by the student within two weeks after the campus vice chancellor for enrollment management has issued a determination. The decision of the associate vice president for enrollment management will be final.

E. Student's Responsibilities: The student is responsible for providing relevant information upon which a residency determination can be made. The burden of proving his or her residency status lies solely upon the student. Moreover, it is the obligation of the student to seek advice when in doubt regarding eligibility for in-state tuition assessment. Every student who is classified as a resident student but who becomes a nonresident at any time by virtue of a change of legal residence is required to notify his or her registrar immediately. An independent student loses New Jersey residency status for tuition purposes upon abandonment of the New Jersey domicile. Assessment of nonresident tuition charges will take effect the semester following the date of abandonment. Any dependent student who is domiciled in the state for tuition purposes shall continue to be eligible for New Jersey Resident Tuition Status despite his or her supporting parent(s) or U.S. Court Appointed legal guardian(s) change of domicile to another state, while such student continues to reside in New Jersey during the course of each academic year and is continuously enrolled.

F. Penalties: If a student has obtained or seeks to obtain resident classification by deliberate concealment of facts or misrepresentation of facts or if he or she fails to come forward with notification upon becoming a nonresident, he or she is subject to disciplinary action.
