Residency for Military

How Do I Provide Proof of Residency for In-State Tuition Benefits?

In reference to our Student Domicile Regulations, 507.3 Determination of Domicile, #4:

A United States government employee or a member of the armed forces who was domiciled in Pennsylvania immediately preceding entry into government service and who has continuously maintained Pennsylvania as his or her declared legal residence, shall be presumed to have a Pennsylvania domicile. Nonresidents stationed in Pennsylvania for military service shall be deemed Pennsylvania domiciliaries.

Effective July 1, 2015, the PA Act 11 and HB131 ensures compliance with the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 (Choice Act).

According to WCU policy, your residency status may require you to supply extra documentation to ensure you receive the proper, in-state tuition benefits. Please visit the Greg and Sandra Weisenstein Veterans Center Benefits section on Eligibility for PA In-State Tuition Benefits for all required documentation and contact information.
