Determination of Maryland Residency
A determination of in-state status for purposes of admission, tuition and fees is made upon admission and remains in effect until successfully challenged in a timely manner. Students may request reevaluation of residency status by filing a petition and providing documentation by the last day of late registration for the semester in which the student wishes to be classified as in-state. Only one petition per semester. Change in status is not granted retroactively.
