How do I establish Residency in the State of Oregon? 

Your purpose for establishing residency in Oregon should not be primarily for educational reasons. Generally, you should reside and be employed in the state of Oregon at least one year prior to matriculation. If you are enrolled in classes in the state of Oregon, you should not be enrolled in more than eight (8) semester or quarter hours. The comprehensive document, Residence Classification Policy and Procedures is available on the University Registrar's Office website. Any applicant in the process of establishing Oregon residency during the application cycle will not be considered an Oregon resident for the purpose of admission and/or tuition assessment until we have been able to confirm that Oregon residency requirements, according to OHSU's Residency Policy, have been satisfied.
