Where to Apply

Each application requires the additional submission of supporting documentation. The Registrar’s Office may require additional documentation prior to making a determination regarding your Indiana Metropolitan or Indiana Reciprocity eligibility.

The residency application and supporting documentation may be submitted to:

Email (preferred): resid@ucmail.uc.edu

Mail: University of Cincinnati

        Office of the Registrar – Attn: Residency Area
        P.O. Box 210060
        Cincinnati, Ohio 45206-0060

 

Important Notes:

  • Because students present in the United States on temporary status (including F-1 and J-1 visa holders) are prevented, by their temporary status, from meeting the legal requirement to establish Indiana residency, these students are not eligible for the metropolitan rate. 
  • Students approved for the Indiana metropolitan rate who relocate to a residence outside of the approved counties are subject to the assessment of out-of state tuition rates.
