Welcome to Connecticut! Because we are a public (state) institution, we offer a significant tuition reduction for Connecticut residents. Residency for purposes of tuition charges is governed by Sec. 10a-29 and 10a-30 of the Connecticut General Statutes. Simply stated, any student who was classified as an out-of-state resident upon entry may petition to change that classification one year after they establish domicile in Connecticut.
If you applied to UConn Law and were accepted as an in-state resident, you do not need to reapply each year thereafter. However, if you applied as an out-of-state student, or were denied residency upon admission, you will need to apply for residency after your first year as a UConn Law student.
The Student Services Department currently oversees the Connecticut residency process and hosts a mandatory meeting each fall for students intending to apply for residency the following spring. Below are some resources to assist our students with the residency process.
