    In the determination of the residence classification of any individual, recognition is to be given to the principle that domicile is not established by mere attendance at a college or university.

    Classification of student residence for the assessment of tuition and other purposes will be made according to the following definitions:

    1. Residence is defined as a person’s domicile, his/her true fixed and permanent home and place of habitation. It is the place where he/she intends to remain, and to which he/she expects to return when he/she leaves without intending to establish a new domicile elsewhere. Domicile is not established by mere attendance at a college;
    2. International Student: A citizen of another country in the USA on other than an immigrant visa;
    3. Out-of-state Student: An American citizen or immigrant who has not established his/her residency in Oregon 90 days prior to the beginning of classes;
    4. In-state Student: An American citizen or immigrant who has maintained a residence in Oregon for at least 90 days prior to the beginning of classes;
    5. Changing residence status to in-state requires proof of Oregon residency that began at least 90 days prior to the beginning of classes;
    6. Legal Guardian: A person who by court order has been appointed to act in the place of the parents of the student;
    7. Emancipated student: A student who has attained the age of majority, or a student who is less than the age of majority, but who is financially and otherwise independent and whose domicile or home is maintained independent of his/her parents or legal guardian;
    8. Reciprocal Tuition: Residents of California, Washington, Idaho and Nevada are eligible for in-state tuition.
