Residency for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Students

On June 29, 2017, the Arizona Board of Regents announced that it will continue to offer in-state tuition for eligible Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students pending the appeal of the decision of the Arizona Court of Appeals in State of Arizona v. Maricopa County Community College District Board.

See ABOR statement on court decision here.

As evidence of a DACA student’s eligibility, universities may accept an Employment Authorization Document or an Arizona driver license issued after 1996 or an Arizona non-operating identification license.

Other documentation establishing that a student is a DACA recipient may also be considered. As with every student who applies for in-state residency status, evidence of residency status provided by the student is to be evaluated in light of the individual circumstances.

Students seeking consideration for classification as a resident for tuition purposes should submit to the Residency Classification Office:

  • a completed Domicile Affidavit: online version  or paper version  (online only available to students admitted to ASU)
  • a copy of your Employment Authorization Document (include a copy of your photo ID)

Additional documentation may be requested upon review of the domicile affidavit.
