Applying for Residency

To apply for a change in residence classification:

  • Complete and print the Residence Questionnaire PDF.
  • Return the completed original Residence Questionnaire (we cannot accept scans/emails or a fax for the initial application) to the UW Tacoma Registrar's Office, MAT 253 along with supporting documentation.

Please note: Once the application and its contents have been submitted, it becomes the property of the University of Washington and will not be returned to students. The University keeps the documentation in a high security vault for 7 years (for records and auditing purposes) and destroys the files after that time period. It is suggested students make copies for themselves in case they need it for future references.
