Submitting an Appeal

To appeal a residency decision, the student must submit the basis for the appeal in writing, to the Residency Appellate Officer, citing each regulation which was deemed to have not been met in the Residency Officer's out-of-state classification. This written appeal must be submitted within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of the Residency Officer's written decision letter.

Any additional evidence or documentation provided as part of the student applicant's appeal should contain an explanation or rationale as to its relevance in the appeal. Please note that the Residency Appellate Officer will have access to all materials submitted with the original Application for In-State Status.

Please submit your written appeal either by mail or electronically to:
Fax: 802-656-8230
Mail: University Residency Appellate Officer, 85 South Prospect Street, 360 Waterman Building, Burlington, VT 05405

Consideration of the Appeal

Upon receipt of the written appeal, the Residency Appellate Officer or designee will review the appeal and may elect to contact the applicant in writing to request additional information. In-person meetings are not needed to make a determination.

Written Appeal Decision

Written decision letters will be sent to the applicant's address of record with the University.
