Each academic term has specific dates in which the application will become available and when it is due. If there is no application available for a specific term, either it has not been released or the window to submit an appeal for that term has closed. You do not need to wait until the deadline to submit an Appeal Application. If you intend to appeal, it is in your best interest to submit the appeal application as soon as possible after completing it so that the Office of the Registrar can begin the initial processing of your appeal.
Important: You must contact a Residence Specialist before completing and submitting an appeal form. A formal residency appeal is not the correct way to request residency in many cases. A Residence Specialist will help you understand if this is the correct process for you. It is best to contact a Residence Specialist by phone at (608) 262-1355. If you cannot reach someone, please leave a message with your phone number and a specialist will return your call when available. You can also contact Residence Specialists at ResidenceForTuition@registrar.wisc.edu.
Please do not attempt to “pre-submit” your appeal form for review. All information that you send to the Registrar’s Office about your residency will be included in your residence file in it’s current state. If you have questions about your appeal form, please contact a residence specialist first, then submit your appeal form after you are certain it is complete.
