Kentucky Residency

For questions regarding Residency status, please call 855-246-2477.

On the admissions application, there are questions relating to residency. How you answer these questions determines if you are identified as a Kentucky resident or an out-of-state resident.

If it is determined that you are an out-of-state resident and you wish to apply for in-state residency, you will need to complete and submit the notarized affidavit, along with supporting documentation, to the Office of Admissions by the term deadline:

Office of Admissions

Cooper Campus
119 Oswald Building
470 Cooper Drive
Lexington, KY 40506


Leestown Campus
One Stop, Building C
164 Opportunity Way
Lexington, KY 40511

Please note that we are unable to review a residency affidavit if it is submitted past the established deadline for the desired term or if it is submitted for a previous term. Any concerns regarding residency must be addressed no later than the end of the first month of the semester.
