Understand your residency classification
When you’re admitted to IU Fort Wayne, you’re classified as an in-state or out-of-state student based on information you provided when you applied. Your residency classification affects your tuition rate, so it’s important that you know how it was determined.
Even if you’re considered a legal resident of the state (e.g., hold an Indiana driver’s license, are registered to vote, and can be called to serve on a jury), you may not qualify for in-state student status. Paying income or property taxes in Indiana also doesn’t qualify you for in-state student status.
Are you eligible?
You may qualify for reclassification at any point during your education. Before you submit an application, you should read IU’s policy on how your status is determined.
