Residency

Indiana University- Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) values the sacrifice put forth by our vast population of student veterans and we continue to do all that we can to aid them in pursuing a higher education. As part of these efforts IUPUI has developed procedures to determine residency exceptions for our military-related students.

As part of these efforts IUPUI recognizes that there are certain non-resident military-affiliated students who are eligible for tuition residency exceptions for tuition purposes under state or federal statutes. To receive any of the following exceptions follow the procedures below:

*If you are SERVING ON ACTIVE DUTY STATIONED IN INDIANA on permanent change of station (PCS) orders, you and your spouse may be considered nonresidents of the state of Indiana for university tuition purposes. However, your military status entitles you to a remission of the nonresident portion of your credit hour fees.

If you wish to be considered for this exception, you must provide a copy of the military orders and a photo I.D. to the Office for Veteran and Military Personnel. Spouses of military personnel must produce a military-issued identification card in addition to military orders. Once your eligibility has been determined, the Office of the Registrar will enter the residency exception in the appropriate student record.

The residency status of children of full-time military personnel is addressed by Trustees Residence Guidelines, Rule 2(c).

*If you are a CURRENT MEMBER OF THE INDIANA NATIONAL GUARD you may qualify for a residency exception under the Senate Enrolled Act 177 or 434. This law states that Indiana National Guard members who show intent to establish residency within your first 12 months at a public institution in Indiana will be eligible for in-state tuition costs.

If you wish to be considered for this exception, you must present proof of current National Guard membership to the Office for Veteran and Military Personnel. Again, you must show intent of residency within the first 12 months of attending IUPUI by providing an Indiana driver’s license, IN automobile registration, or IN voter registration.

*If you are a MILITARY VETERAN who has moved to the State of Indiana to establish residency within 12 months of your separation and/or discharge date then you may qualify for a residency exception under Senate Enrolled Act 177 or 434.

To qualify you must have enrolled at IUPUI within 12 months of separation and provide the Office for Veteran and Military Personnel a copy of your DD Form 214.

*If you are a POST 9/11 GI BILL OR A MONTGOMERY GI BILL RECIPIENT who has relocated to the State of Indiana and you have enrolled at IUPUI within three years of your date of discharge from active military service; OR, if you are a dependent of a military veteran who separated from active duty using the POST 9/11 TRANSFER OF BENEFITS and you have enrolled at IUPUI within three years of your parent or spouse(s) date of separation you may qualify for this exception under Public Law 113-146, Section 702.

To receive this exception you must provide the Office for Veteran and Military Personnel a copy of your (or your parent/spouse) DD Form 214 and a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility from US Department of Veterans Affairs showing eligibility for the Post-9/11 or Montgomery GI Bill.

*If you are a SERVICE MEMBER who has maintained INDIANA RESIDENT STATUS while SERVING ON ACTIVE DUTY STATIONED outside of the state of Indiana on permanent change of station (PCS) orders, you and your dependents may be considered residents of the state of Indiana for university fee paying purposes.

If you wish to be considered for this exception, you must provide a copy of your original enlistment paperwork, a copy of your most recent LES and a photo I.D. of the person attending our University to the Office for Veteran and Military Personnel. Dependents of military personnel must produce a military-issued identification card. Should your records indicate that you have in fact maintained your Indiana residency, we will work with the Office of the Registrar to update your residency classification accordingly.
