Although a full-time regularly-enrolled resident student is not required to pay tuition while enrolled at Idaho State University, students are charged fees for educational costs excluding the cost of instruction in accordance with the Idaho State System of Higher Education "Notice to Nonresidents of the State of Idaho."
The establishment of a new domicile in Idaho by a person formerly domiciled in another state has occurred if such person is physically present in Idaho primarily for purposes other than educational and can show satisfactory proof that such person is without a present intention to return to such other state or to acquire a domicile at some other place outside of Idaho. In determining whether a student is domiciled in the state of Idaho primarily for purposes other than educational Idaho State University shall consider, but shall not be limited to the following factors:
Registration and payment of Idaho taxes or fees on a motor vehicle, mobile home, travel trailer, or other item of personal property for which state registration and the payment of a state tax or fee is required.
Permanent full-time employment or the hourly equivalent thereof in the state of Idaho.
Registration to vote for state elected officials in Idaho at a general election.
Residency decisions for fee payment purposes are made by the Admissions Office. Students may appeal through the Residency Appeals Committee at Idaho State University.
This notice provides for appeal from a final determination denying residency status in the following way:
Appeal may be initiated by the filing of an action in the District Court of Bannock County wherein Idaho State University is located; an appeal from the District Court shall lie as in all civil actions.
Normal Idaho residency requirements shall be in force for students who
apply for some special graduate and professional programs. These include
but are not limited to the Idaho Dental Education Program (IDEP), the
WAMI (Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) Regional Medical Education
Program; the University of Utah College of Medicine; the WOI
(Washington, Oregon, Idaho) Regional Program in Veterinary Medicine; the
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Professional
Student Exchange Programs (medicine, optometry and occupational therapy)
and Graduate Education Program.
NOTE: STUDENTS WHO INITIALLY ENROLL AT ISU AS NON-RESIDENTS AND LATER
WISH TO HAVE THEIR STATUS CHANGED TO RESIDENT MUST OBTAIN AN AFFIDAVIT FOR RESIDENCY FORM THROUGH THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE. IT MUST BE COMPLETED, NOTARIZED AND SUBMITTED TO THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE ALONG WITH SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION. IF APPROVED THE STUDENT'S STATUS IS CHANGED IN THE COMPUTER AND THE STUDENT IS BILLED AS A RESIDENT. NOTE: The burden of proof in requesting reclassification to resident
status rests with the individual in providing clear and convincing evidence of bonafide domicile in Idaho.
Idaho State University Applications for Non-resident Tuition Waivers are available to students from the:
Office of Registration and Records Idaho State University Box 8196 Pocatello, Idaho 83209 (208)236-2661
A Non-resident Tuition Waiver Committee considers all applications and is responsible for awards. Students from the states of Utah and Washington, by indicating such residency status on the application form, have an opportunity to apply for non-resident tuition waivers at Idaho State University under reciprocal agreements with these states. Time accrued while receiving a non-resident fee waiver will NOT contribute towards the length of time required for Idaho residency status.
