Idaho Residency

In determining residency for fee assessment purposes, Idaho State University is governed by:

Initial Determination of Residency Status

A student’s residency status is determined during the admissions process based upon the information provided on ISU’s admission application.

Changing Residency Status

  1. Complete the Idaho Residency Determination Worksheet (IRDW).
  2. Attach documenation to the IRDW in support of residency.
  3. Have student's signature notarized. (Nortary services are available in the Office of the Registrar, ISU satellite locations, and most local banks/credit unions.)
  4. Deliver the IRDW and supporting documentation to the Office of the Registrar via email, postal mail or in person.

To change your residency status for a semester, your IRDW must be received before the Add/Drop date for the semester. (Please see the Academic Calendar for dates.)
