Each student or prospective student whose status for entitlement of in-state tuition and fees is uncertain can receive a University ruling. In doing so, students and their families must provide all relevant information on special application forms. Supporting documentation is routinely required.
Undergraduate students must submit a complete application, which consists of
- Student form
- Parental/Spouse/Guardian Form
- Supporting documentation
Military students will only need to submit the completed Military form as their application.
These forms can be printed from this Web page or obtained from the Office of Residency Classification in G01 Sikes Hall, 864-656-2280.
Applications take several weeks to review once all of the documentation has been received. In order to receive a decision by the day bills are due, you must submit your application by the recommended deadlines which are:
- June 15 for Fall semester applications
- November 1 for Spring semester applications
- Aprils 15 for Summer semester applications
Applications will be accepted until the day before the first day of classes for the term that a student is seeking in-state status, but the full out-of-state bill must be paid. If a student’s residence is changed, he or she will receive a refund for any overpaid tuition.
Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
