- About Us
Initial residency for tuition purposes determinations at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside are made by the Office of Admissions in accordance with the Wisconsin State Statutes 36.27(2), which governs residency status for tuition purposes for all UW System institutions. Students must be a fully bona fide resident of Wisconsin for at least 12 consecutive months prior to enrollment at a UW System school for eligibility for in-state tuition.
If you have questions about your residency for tuition purposes status, after reading the below FAQ's, you may wish to contact the UW-Parkside residency coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is our goal to make students residents whenever possible in accordance with the State law. While every student has the right to file an appeal, a consultation with the Residency Coordinator may help you determine whether moving forward with an appeal is the best decision. The Coordinator will provide guidance and offer a professional opinion about the likelihood of a successful appeal based on the State law and the circumstances of your situation.
Please note that students must be enrolled in classes at UW-Parkside to submit an appeal.
