Step 1: Initial Classification

Initial residency tuition classification at CU Anschutz Medical Campus is determined based on information students provide on the Initial Residency Verification Form. This form is administered by each individual school and program admissions office. Only students who are already admitted to a program at CU Anschutz Medical Campus should fill out this form.

After filling out the form, students are initially classified as Resident, Non-resident or Under Review. Students in Under Review status may receive follow up communication from the Office of the Registrar requesting further information or supporting documentation for tuition classification.

Step 2: Final Classification

Students in Under Review status will have their tuition classification updated to Resident or Non-resident after providing all requested information. Students who fail to respond to requests for further information or verification will remain in Under Review status and be billed at the non-resident rate.

Fully admitted students who disagree with their initial tuition classification have the right to file a Petition for Resident Tuition.
