Domicile Decisions and Rate Assessment
In-state tuition rates are a privilege granted by the Code of Virginia and are awarded only upon application for in-state rates. Students must apply for in-state tuition rates in order to qualify, and application deadlines apply. Students who fail to apply for in-state privileges will be billed at the out-of-state rate. Upon approval, rates will be revised appropriately. Refer to the Registrar's web page for more details.
Pending Domicile Decisions
Students with pending domicile decisions are responsible for paying tuition for at least the in-state rate by the tuition deadline. Once the domicile decision is made, if the student is classified at the out-of-state rate, the difference between the in-state and out-of-state rate will be due immediately. Students should not wait until the final domicile decision is made to pay tuition.
