If you are claiming entitlement to Virginia in-state tuition rates, even if you are currently a Virginia resident, you must complete the non-degree in-state tuition application which is part of the non-degree application. Failure to complete this form will result in your classification as an out-of-state student. For more information on qualifying for in-state status, please see the in-state eligibility page.
