UConn School of Law is a public (state) institution that offers a significant tuition reduction for Connecticut residents. Residency for purposes of tuition charges is governed by Sections 10a-29 and 10a-30 of the Connecticut General Statutes. Simply stated, any student who was classified as an out-of-state resident upon entry may petition to change that classification one year after establishing domicile in Connecticut.
If you applied to UConn School of Law and were accepted as an in-state resident, you do not need to reapply each year thereafter. If you applied as an out-of-state student, or were denied in-state residency status on admission, you will need to apply for residency after your first year as a UConn Law student.
The Student Finance Office oversees the Connecticut residency process and hosts a mandatory meeting each fall for students intending to apply for residency the following spring.
For more information on obtaining designation as a Connecticut Resident please review the Residency Application as well as the Connecticut General Statutes governing residency. The residency application requires a signature before a Notary Public. View a list of Notaries on the Uconn Law campus.
