RowanSOM Residency Statement

RowanSOM Student Residence and In-State Tuition Policy

Domicile is a legal concept defined by New Jersey Law as (in general terms) the place where a student has his or her true, fixed permanent home and principal living establishment, and to which, whenever he or she is absent, he or she has the intention of returning.

Students residing in New Jersey for a period of twelve (12) months before first enrolling at RowanSOM are presumed to be domiciled in this State for tuition purposes.*

Students providing a non-New Jersey permanent address on their applications to RowanSOM, or who indicate a state other than New Jersey as their State of Residence (SR) through the common application service, American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service (AACOMAS), are presumed not to be domiciled in New Jersey unless evidence of establishment of domicile in New Jersey is provided.** In the case where both a permanent address and an SR are provided, the SR will determine domicile.

Note: This policy applies to students who enroll after June 30, 2014.

* N.J.A.C. 9A:5-1.1 provides that persons residing in New Jersey for a period of 12 months before first enrolling at a public institution in the State are presumed to be domiciled in the State for tuition purposes.

** N.J.A.C. 9A:5-1.2 provides guidelines for what primary evidence an institution may require to show that a student is domiciled in New Jersey.
