Residency Information at Idaho State University

Idaho Residency

In determining residency for fee assessment purposes, Idaho State University is governed by Idaho Statute 33-3717B (

Initial Determination of Residency Status

A student’s residency status is determined during the admissions process based upon the information provided on ISU’s admission application.

Changing Residency Status

If a student would like to request a change in residency status, the first step is to complete the Idaho Residency Determination Worksheet (IRDW). If the student is requesting that ISU certify the student’s Idaho residency for application to the University of Utah Medical School, the process is the same. However, please clearly note across the top of the IRDW, “For University of Utah Medical School.”

The student must then attach documentation to this IRDW in support of residency.

The student's signature must additionally be notarized (this service is available in the Office of the Registrar as well as ISU satellite locations and most local banks/credit unions). The IRDW and supporting documentation can then be personally delivered, mailed, or emailed to the Office of the Registrar:
