Application for In-State Classification

The Application for In-State Classification is only available to:

  • Persons seeking admission to one of the programs at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB); or
  • Students recently admitted to a UMB program, who have not yet started classes; or
  • Students recently admitted to a different UMB program than they were previously admitted and enrolled in; or
  • Students who are returning from a Leave of Absence.

Students who previously completed this application but deferred their admission should notify the Office of the Registrar as soon as possible. Students who previously completed this application but are now seeking admission for a subsequent term (due to a canceled, declined, or waitlisted application, or an application to an alternate program) should contact the Office of the Registrar to determine if it is necessary to complete another application.

This form is not available to previously enrolled or currently enrolled students who are seeking in-state classification. If you are currently enrolled as an out-of-state student and wish to seek a change in residency classification, please review the instructions for submitting a Petition for In-State Classification.

If you are uncertain as to whether or not you meet the requirements for in-state classification, please read the University System of Maryland Policy on Student Classification for Admission and Tuition Purposes.
