Determining State Residency

NSU MD evaluates completed state residency applications from residents of the State of Florida. For tuition purposes, all incoming students will be classified as out-of-state residents until their state residency application has been evaluated and accepted.

Students who do not complete their residency application before the start of the academic year will not be eligible for in-state tuition or reclassification during the year. Upon matriculation, these students are not eligible for reclassification of state residency, and for tuition purposes, will be assessed out-of-state tuition for all subsequent terms of attendance.

Residency Application Submission

For initial determination of residency, submit the State Residency Application to Florida Residency In-State Tuition Department:
