Important Note about Changing Addresses and Official NJ Residency

Please note that whatever you select as your permanent address must truly be your permanent address and reflect your official state of residency as determined by state law. A change of address does NOT automatically trigger a review of residency for tuition purposes. A direct appeal for a review of NJ residency must be made by the student in writing. See below.

 

How to Request a Review of Residency

NJ Residency Policy:
Rowan University determines state residency for tuition purposes according to New Jersey Administrative Code 9A:5-1.1-1.2, which requires that a student must be legally domiciled* in the state of New Jersey for at least twelve (12) months immediately prior to enrollment in order to be charged in-state tuition. All those domiciled outside of the state are charged out-of-state tuition.

Initial determination of New Jersey residency for tuition purposes at Rowan is made at the time of your admission application to the University and is based upon your answers to the application question regarding residency as well as your permanent address and high school. After the initial determination is made, a Review of NJ Residency Request (with required documentation) must be submitted in writing (from the Rowan email address) to the Office of the University Registrar (registrarassist@rowan.edu) in order to be considered for a change in tuition due to residency. Determination of any submitted requests will be emailed by the Office of the University Registrar to the student’s official Rowan email address.

It is the studentís responsibility to request a review of NJ residency from the Office of the University Registrar (if matriculated) and from the Office of Admissions (if not yet matriculated, although the Registrar may still be involved). A change of address does not trigger this process. A direct appeal for a review of NJ residency must be made by the student in writing.

 

How to Request a Review of Residency:

  • If you are moving out of the state of NJ, please email registrarassist@rowan.edu (from your Rowan email address) informing us of this fact and the date it is effective so that your records may be updated accordingly.
  • If you are moving into the state of NJ, please email registrarassist@rowan.edu (from your Rowan email address) informing us of this fact and the date it is effective, including at least items #1 and #2 below so that an official review may be performed.
  • Note: If you are a Rowan University medical student, please instead consult about residency requirements and process directly with that schoolís Registrar.
  • 1. Submit a notarized affidavit signed by the student making the request, and including the following details:
    • ďI FULL LEGAL NAME, ROWAN ID, verify that I have been a NJ resident for at least the past 12 months. I further confirm that I moved to NJ in MONTH and YEAR and did not do so for educational purposes, but rather because EXPLANATION.Ē
      • (This affidavit should also detail any other information/clarification that the student believes would be necessary in the studentís particular case to assist in the determination of New Jersey residency.)
    • Lists the NJ address in question.
    • If the tax returns do not clearly show dependent status of the student, it must be included in the notarized statement.
  • 2. A copy of your New Jersey state income tax return for the most recent tax year that demonstrates you were domiciled in New Jersey for at least 12 months prior to the start date for the term in which you are requesting in-state tuition (independent student)
    OR
    A copy of your parent or legal guardianís New Jersey state income tax return for the most recent tax year that demonstrates you were domiciled in New Jersey for at least twelve (12) months prior to the start date for the term in which you are requesting in-state tuition (dependent student) (Property tax records are not acceptable.)
  • 3. It is strongly recommended to also submit a copy of the NJ Driverís License for the student and/or an NJ Voter Identification card for the student. (The issue dates of these should also demonstrate at least 12 months of NJ residency.)

 

Notes:

  • If you are active military or a dependent of active military, please also submit a copy of your active service Military ID.
  • If approved for NJ Residency, it will apply to the next future term possible (as indicated by the 12-month prior to enrollment requirement). Retro-active assessments are not performed.
  • Tuition costs are listed at rowan.edu/bursar for non-medical undergraduate students and at rowanu.com for graduate, post-bac, Rowan Global undergraduate students, and for the winter and summer sessions. (Winter and summer sessions usually charge one rate for in-state and out-of-state students.)
  • A review of residency can take 2-3 weeks to be complete and they must be requested before bills are due for the term in which the change is requested.
