Important Notes about Changing Addresses and Official NJ Residency Policy

Please note that whatever you select as your permanent address must truly be your permanent address and reflect your official state of residency as determined by state law.

Changing your address will NOT automatically trigger a review of residency for tuition purposes. Students who move into New Jersey should make an official request for a residency review. Residency review requests should be made before the term bill is due. The Registrar runs address change reports several times each year, so students who change their address to an out-of-state address should be prepared to have their tuition adjusted to the out-of-state rate.
