Residency Clarification and Petition Deadlines
The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center is a state-supported institution of higher education supported by legislative funds derived from State of Oklahoma tax revenue. As a state tax-supported institution, the University gives preference in tuition to residents of the State of Oklahoma. The University follows the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education Policy Statement on Residency Status for Tuition Purposes. The full text of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education policy statement on resident status for tuition purposes can be found at: http://www.okhighered.org/state-system/policy-procedures/2011/Chapter%203-March%202011.pdf, then click on Academic Affairs, then 3.17 Residence Status of Enrolled Students.
The University's definition of the term "resident" may be different from the definitions developed by other, non-university agencies. The University does not recognize declarations of resident status made by other agencies. Thus, a person who is an Oklahoma resident for tax or voting purposes is not necessarily a resident for University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center tuition purposes.
