The Office of Admissions (for undergraduate and non-degree applicants) and the Graduate School (for graduate applicants) determines an applicant's residence classification as part of the admittance process. This classification is determined by rules established for all Purdue Fort Wayne students by the trustees of Purdue University. The Purdue policy may be reviewed here: residence classification of students for tuition purposes.
The University’s definition of the term Resident is different from the definitions developed by other non-University agencies. Purdue University does not recognize declarations of resident status made by other agencies. Thus, a person who is an Indiana resident for tax or voting purposes, for example, may not qualify as a Resident for Purdue University tuition and fee purposes.
If you think you are classified incorrectly, you may apply for resident student status. Review the residence classifications guidelines to make sure you are eligible before completing and submitting the Residence Classification form and supporting documents to the Purdue Fort Wayne Office of the Registrar.
