For admission and tuition purposes, Eastern Kentucky University recognizes a Kentucky resident status and a non-resident status. When you apply to EKU, your residency is determined based on your permanent address and the location of your most recent coursework. Did we get it wrong? No worries. You can initiate an appeal by filling out the form below and submitting* it to the Dean of Students Office.
*Please note that the residency appeal form requires a signature and must be notarized. For the fall or spring terms, the residency appeal form must be submitted no later than 30 days after the first full day of classes. For a summer term, the residency appeal form must be submitted no later than 10 days after the first day of classes.
