The regulation “Determination of Residency Status for Admission and Tuition Assessment Purposes” is provided by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE). The regulation is used by Kentucky state-supported postsecondary education institutions pursuant to KRS 164.020 and KRS 164.030 and is codified as 13 KAR 2:045, Determination of Residency Status for Admission and Tuition Assessment Purposes.  

KRS164.020(8) requires the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education to determine tuition and approve the minimum qualifications for admission to a state supported postsecondary education institution and authorizes the Council to set different tuition amounts for residents of Kentucky and for nonresidents. The administrative regulation, 13 KAR 2:045, establishes the procedure and guidelines for determining the residency status of a student who is seeking admission to, and who is enrolled at, a state-supported postsecondary education institution.

The initial determination of residency status for tuition purposes is made by the institution during the admission process, and is based on information available in the admission records. A review of the determination of residency may be requested by the student, the institution, or the Council on Postsecondary Education.
