The governing board at each university in Michigan has the authority to establish a residency policy for admissions and tuition and fee purposes. Residency policies will vary between institutions and are independent of those used by the state to determine residency for purposes such as income and property tax liability, driving and voting.

Any Western Michigan University student may apply for in-state resident status for any semester or session in which they are enrolled in on-campus courses by completing a residency application in accordance with University procedure.
