Residency Deadlines

Residency Deadlines


Deadlines are critical and missing a deadline can have significant consequences. 

  • Petition deadline.  Per ABOR policy, failure to submit a petition by this deadline constitutes a waiver of your right to petition for that term. This deadline applies to the online questionnaire/petition.
  • Document deadline.  Your supporting documetation must be submitted by this date, which is 21 days after the petition deadline.   Your petition cannot be evaluated without supporting documentation. 
  • Priority deadline is for students who have a complete petition (docs included) prior to this date.

When to submit your petition

Submit everything as early as possible, but not prior to when you meet requirements.  For example, if you will meet the requirement for 12 months of continuous presence in July, submit your petition in July.  Submitting a petition too early means you may have to wait a little longer for your decision.
