Nonresident Student Enrollment in State Institutions of Higher Education: An Overview.
Chronister, Jay L.; Martin, E. Davis
This paper provides a general overview of selected questions and issues related to nonresident student enrollment in state institutions of higher education. The intent of the report was to analyze issues concerning nonresident student enrollment, the types and source of constraints placed on nonresident enrollment, and selected constitutional and statutory considerations involved in and determining residency. The methodology of the study included a review of current literature on nonresident enrollment, case law on residency issues, and surveys of state higher education agencies and public institution members of the constraints on resident enrollment. The report is written in three major sections. The first section reviews student migration trends and serves as background information for subsequent sections. Section 2 deals with the nature of nonresident enrollment constraints and contains a review of results of the state and institutional surveys. Section 3 introduces case law related to constitutional and statutory issues. The introduction is an overview of case laws and is not intended to be definitive since it is viewed from an educator's perspective rather than from the perspective of a legal specialist. (Author/KE)
