Residency Appeals Process

NYS Residency Application for Tuition Billing Purposes Appeals Process

Students wishing to appeal the determination of their NYS Residency Application for Tuition Billing Purposes must do so in writing within 30 days from the issue date of the denial letter.

The appeal letter may be addressed to “NYS Residency Appeals Board” and submitted to: 

Student Accounts Office
University at Albany, SUNY
Campus Center G-26
1400 Washington Avenue
Albany, NY  12222

Students should contact the Office of Student Accounts to learn the reasons for the denial of the application. Letters of appeal should clearly explain the reasons the student believes the determination was incorrect. Any additional documentation believed to further support the appeal should also be submitted.

On receipt of the appeal in Student Accounts, the entire application with appeal material is packaged and forwarded to the Chair of the Residency Appeals Board. The Appeals Board meets regularly, on the third Tuesday of each month, and a written letter of determination is sent directly to the student.

All decisions rendered by the campus appeals board shall be final.
