Next Steps - What Happens After an Application is Submitted

Pending a review and decision on the application submitted, students will be expected to make full payment, including non-resident fees, by the appropriate payment due date. Payment deadlines cannot be waived or extended while the residency review is being completed. Students may opt to pay by using the University tuition payment plan.

After the review of the application is complete, students will be sent an email of the decision.

Classifications or exemptions for residency may be temporary (for one semester only) or permanent. If a classification or exemption is temporary, this will be listed in the Guidelines and Apply section for that classification or exemption.

Decisions made or documentation requested in regards to residency from another Ohio public university/college does not necessitate a similar decision or request at Miami University.

Additional Information Needed

If additional information is needed, one email will be sent to the student at their Miami email address (or for incoming students, email address provided on application) advising what documentation must be submitted to complete a review. Failure to provide this documentation by the final application deadline date for the term will result in their application for residency to be denied.

It is the student’s responsibility to obtain any requested documentation needed to complete the review of their application for residency. All missing documentation being requested needs to be submitted to the university prior to the published deadline date for review.


Approval of an application is not retroactive and will only be applicable to the semester/term in which application was made. If non-resident charges have been paid for the semester and the student’s application is approved, a credit will be applied to the student’s account.

If out-of-state tuition charges have been paid for the semester and the student has been approved for in-state residency in regards to tuition which results in a credit on the student’s account, the student will receive a refund for that term.

If you are receiving financial assistance, your aid will be reviewed and adjustments may occur as a result of being reclassified as an in-state student for tuition purposes.


If an application is denied for the semester/term application is made, a student can refile an application for the following semester if their situation has changed to warrant a review.
