Petition for Oklahoma Residency


If your status has changed or you have concerns that a classification is incorrect, 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 (3.18) of  the Oklahoma State 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. In-state reclassification (and associated in-state tuition) is not granted on a retroactive basis.

  • Fall - October 31
  • Spring - March 31
  • Summer - June 30

If you are receiving scholarships, loans, grants or other financial aid, contact the OUHSC Financial Aid office for information concerning the impact reclassification may have on your financial aid.

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.
