4.2.D  Resident Status of University Employees

(Universitywide Administrative Memorandum 245.3, revised September 1, 1981)

University employees whose appointments for pay purposes are for half-time or greater shall be considered as residents for fee purposes. Similarly, such employee’s spouse, children under the age of eighteen, and children who are dependent upon the employee for support (as defined by the Internal Revenue Service) and are full-time students at the University of Arkansas shall also be considered as residents for fee purposes. Part-time employees who desire to take course work, or whose immediate family members (as defined above) desire to take course work, must obtain a form from the office of the chief fiscal officer on the campus, certifying their appointment and present it to the Registrar, who will be instructed not to charge non-resident tuition. Only those persons whose appointment forms are on file in the office of the chief fiscal officer on the campus shall be certified. This policy clarifies and provides implementation procedures for Board of Trustees Policy 520.6. Graduate students and graduate assistants are considered students as distinguished from employees for the purpose of this memorandum.
