Residency for Tuition Purposes
The University of Montevallo’s Residency Guidelines are based on Alabama Code 16-64 regarding residency practices for tuition purposes at all public institutions of higher education within the state. Any student attending the University of Montevallo that lives in Alabama for the primary purpose of obtaining an education will be considered a “non-resident student” for tuition purposes. Initial determination of a student’s residency classification is made by the Admissions Office for undergraduate students, and by Graduate Admissions and Records for graduate students. A student’s residency classification will remain unchanged throughout their education at the University of Montevallo unless compelling and satisfactory evidence is provided indicating that the student’s reason(s) for coming to and remaining in the state has changed.
