Residency and In-State Tuition

Determining Residency 

The University at Albany must comply with SUNY’s administrative policies when determining a student’s residency status for tuition billing purposes.

SUNY has specific policy that can result in some military-connected students receiving the In-State Tuition Rate if they meet the standards linked below.

Students trying to determine their residency status should ask themselves the following questions: 

Am I a veteran or military-connected student?

Veterans and military-connected students should review the Veteran, Military & Military-Connected Students In-State Tuition Policy.
If you believe you meet the eligibility listed on the link above, please contact [email protected] for additional information and assistance.

What if I am not a military-connected student?

Please refer to the Student Accounts Residency information for detailed information and application instructions.
