To assist in the Determination of Domicile, please send the following to: West Chester University, Office of the Registrar, 25 University Avenue, West Chester, PA 19383. Allow 30 days for decision.
"Domicile" is a legal term that is defined as the place where an individual intends to remain and live permanently or indefinitely. It is the place where a person intends to return to after any absence. A person may live in a place for temporary purposes, such as a vacation or attending college. Once the goal of the temporary purpose is accomplished, however, the person does not intend to remain in that place. Since the person's presence is only for temporary reasons, the individual cannot be considered an in-state resident for tuition purposes.
