Petition for Oklahoma Residency


If you think that your classification is incorrect or status changed, you may complete the Petition for Oklahoma Residency and return it to the Office of Admissions and Records.


Each residency petition is judged on its own merit using the guidelines and regulations established by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education (OSRHE).  Residency is addressed in Chapter 3 (3.17) of  the Regents' Policy and Procedures Manual.  It is the student's responsibility and burden to provide convincing evidence to adequately support the petition.


Petitions and supporting documents must be submitted by the following deadlines.  Petitions submitted after the deadline will be reviewed for the next term.

Spring 2016 - February 1, 2016

Summer 2016 - June 10, 2016

Fall 2016 - September 2, 2016

Spring 2017 - January 30, 2017



In-state reclassification for an approved petition is not granted on a retroactive basis.

Contact an Admissions Officer by email at or by calling (405)271-2359.
