4.2.D  Resident Status of University Employees

(Board Policy 520.6, revised January 27, 2022)

University employees whose appointment for pay purposes is for 50 percent or greater shall be considered in-state residents for tuition and 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 any campus of the University of Arkansas System shall also be considered as residents for tuition and fee purposes. For the purposes of this policy, post-doctoral fellows, resident doctors, and interns employed by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and graduate students and graduate assistants at other campuses are considered students and are not eligible for this benefit.
