Utah law outlines the requirement for student residency*. According to the code, a student must have maintained continuous residency in Utah for one full year before applying. Applicants must also sign a written declaration that they have relinquished residency in another state and submit objective evidence that they have established residency. Forms of proof include: Utah high school transcript, a Utah driver’s license, state tax return, existing voter registration, utility bill, pay stub, rental agreement. Residency applications are due seven days after the first day of classes.

Providing this information does not guarantee you will be approved for residency reclassification.
All items are due prior to the end of the 2nd week of the semester to be considered for that semester.
