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.
For more detailed information about tuition residency, contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office at 413-545-0222 or visit our Residency Policy.
