Upon admission students are classified as residents or non-residents. Residency for tuition purposes is based upon standards set forth in Wisconsin Statutes 36.27(2), which govern resident status for tuition purposes. These standards are different from other standards used to determine residency for voting, paying taxes, and other purposes. Therefore, it is important that you understand the Wisconsin statute governing resident status for tuition purposes and how it may apply to you.
