Board of Regents State Residency Policy
Based on Montana Board of Regents Policy 940.1: A person may be classified as in-state following a 12 month continuous period of domicile in Montana with a documented and dated intent to become a resident of Montana.
The 12 month period does not begin to run until an act indicative of intent to become a Montana resident is taken.
The following will serve as such indicators:
Only in the event that none of the above indicators are
appropriate, the person seeking in-state status may file an
affidavit of intent to establish residency. A form may be
obtained from and must be returned to Student Services. This
form must be submitted to Student Services one month before the
start of classes.
Other actions may be considered as indicators provided that the action is clearly indicative of an intent to establish residency and is not an action that students routinely take.
For questions regarding residency and to view the entire Board of Regents policy, please contact Student Services.
