Residency Classification of Students for Tuition Differential.
Vestal, Allan D.
The classification of students in state-owned institutions of higher learning for the purpose of tuition differential involves a number of different legal problems. In an effort to shed some light on the problems involved, five questions are posed and answers attempted. These questions are: (1) Is it constitutionally permissible for a state to charge higher tuition for nonresidents than for residents? (2) Can a state have an arbitrary period of nonresidency? (3) What of a provision that a student can obtain residency classification only by becoming a nonstudent for a period of time? (4) What of a provision that a student, once classified as a nonresident, can never gain residency classification? (5) Assuming that a state can classify according to residency, what factors can be considered in making that determination? The author concludes that the classification of resident and nonresident must be based upon some logical criteria; the classification cannot be arbitrary. (Author/MJM)
