Certain international students may qualify for in-state tuition, depending on their visa type.  Examples include:

  • dependent students on H-4 visas, whose parents have been residing and working in Massachusetts for a year or more;
  • students who have received Deferred Status through the Obama initiative. 

International students on student visas will not qualify for in-state tuition. International students will be considered out-of-state for tuition residency purposes; they must contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office and provide appropriate visa documentation in order to initiate a residency reclassification review.
