Residency Verification - RSV (Undergraduate)


In-state(resident) or out-of-state(non-resident) residency status will determine a student's tuition rate. Tuition rates for both statuses can be obtained by visiting the Office of the Bursar's tuition and fees page. Residency status is first established during the admissions process and your residency status will appear in your admission materials.

Morgan State University Board Policy

Defining In-State Residency Status:

Morgan State University defines in-state status (resident) according to the Morgan State University board policy on student classification for admission and tuition purposes. In-state status is granted to students who, for at least twelve (12) consecutive months immediately prior to and including the last date available to register for courses in the semester/term for which the student seeks in-state tuition status, has the continuous intent to:

Make Maryland his or her permanent home; and
Abandon his or her former home state; and
Reside in Maryland indefinitely; and
Reside in Maryland primarily for a purpose other than that of attending an educational institution in Maryland.
