Residency Policy

Residency Policy Information

The University System of Maryland (USM) is supported by funding from Maryland State tax revenue. Therefore, it is the policy of the Board of Regents of the University System of Maryland (USM) to recognize the tuition categories of in-state and out-of-state students for the purpose of admission and assessing tuition charges. The requirements set forth in this policy are designed to provide a fair and equitable basis for determining a student’s classification for tuition purposes.
