Residency Information for Future Students

Getting Colorado Residency

CU Anschutz Medical Campus residency status is initially determined by the information you provide on the Initial Residency Verification Form you will receive once you are a fully admitted student.


Step 1: Initial Classification

Initial residency tuition classification at CU Anschutz Medical Campus is determined based on information students provide on the Initial Residency Verification Form. This form is administered by each individual school and program admissions office. Only students who are already admitted to a program at CU Anschutz Medical Campus should complete this form.

After filling out the form, students are initially classified as Resident, Nonresident or Under Review. Students in Under Review status may receive follow up communication from the Office of the Registrar requesting further information or supporting documentation for tuition classification.

Once a preliminary residency status is determined (i.e. Resident, Nonresident, Under Review), new students should allow up to 24 hours prior to enrolling via self service in their student portal. Students should work with their school, college, program, or department for specific enrollment instructions.

Step 2: Final Classification

Students in Under Review status will have their tuition classification updated to Resident or Non-resident after providing all requested information. Students who fail to respond to requests for further information or verification will remain in Under Review status and be billed at the non-resident rate.


Fully admitted students who disagree with their initial tuition classification have the right to file a Petition for Resident Tuition.
