Applying for Ohio Residency for Tuition Purposes Under the Ohio GI Promise

Complete the Ohio GI Promise Residency Reclassification Application. Please note that the application includes specific instructions in regards to required documentation. Additional documentation may be required prior to making a determination regarding your Ohio GI Promise residency eligibility.

The University Residency Officer will not review the residency reclassification application until both the veteran claimant and the student spouse or student dependent (if they are applying for residency) have submitted all pages of the application and all requested documents.

Miami University is required to follow Ohio Board of Regents guidelines in interpreting and applying the Ohio GI Promise and Ohio Administrative Code 3333-1-10.
