Appealing the nonresident status

Appealing the nonresident status

Important: Before filling out an appeal form, contact a Residence Counselor at ResidenceForTuition@registrar.wisc.edu or (608) 262-1355. A formal residence appeal is not the right process for all residency claims. You must discuss your circumstances with a Residence Counselor to determine if this is the correct option for you.

Important: COVID-19 Impacts on Residency Appeals

Residency appeals hearings are normally held in person in the Office of the Registrar. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, appeals hearings will be held remotely via WebEx, a secure service for remote meeting.  As the COVID-19 situation develops, there may be changes to this approach. However, for the indefinite future, all ‘in-person’ appeals will be held remotely via WebEx.

Due to social distancing policies, you will need to submit your appeals form by postal mail or email. Please see the instructions on the appeals form. The form does not need to be notarized while the COVID-19 appeals structure is in place.

Please contact a residence counselor about your appeal prior to completing the form. Residence counselors can provide guidance about how to complete the form and can advise you on your legal rights and responsibilities.

Please note that all information is subject to change due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will communicate changes to appeals practices on this website and will contact you directly if a change impacts an appeal for which you have already applied.

We appreciate your understanding during this uncertain time.
