Once matriculated, residency information is maintained by the One Stop Service Center. In order to update residency status please fill out the Petition for New Jersey Resident Tuition Classification form. If you have any questions about your status you may email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Students who have been a resident within the State of New Jersey for a period of less than 12 months, prior to enrollment are considered as out-of-state students.
Military personnel and their dependents who live in the State of New Jersey and are enrolled at Kean University will be considered as in-state students.
Residency for non-United States citizens is determined based on criteria established by federal immigration laws. Non-citizens are divided into two categories: immigrant aliens and non-immigrant aliens. The residency rules for immigrant aliens is the same as those rules for United States citizens. Non-immigrant aliens are divided further based upon their visa status. Any non-immigrant alien who is in the United States on a temporary visa (including: B,C,D,F,H,K,L,M,O,R,N,TD, NATO classifications, or those with Employment Authorization Cards) is considered an out-of-state student for purposes of tuition and fees. A non-immigrant alien with visa type A,E,G,H1B,I, and J may be eligible to be considered in-state, but must confirm their information and status with the One Stop Service Center.
