Instructions.

Snow College's Residency Policy permits students to appeal the College's decisions relating to Residency to classify a student as a nonresident. A student may appeal (1) the initial determination made during the admission's process, and (2) the Registrar's decision to deny any residency (e.g. Residency Application, HB144, Military Exemption). Any appeal must be based on Snow College's Residency Policy, the Board of Regents residency policy (R512), or on Utah Code Annotated § 53B-8-102. When writing your letter of appeal, it is imperative that you provide the section in the policy that supports your position.

The following are specific instructions for the two types of appeals.

I. Initial Determination Appeals.

  1. Read both Snow College's Residency Policy and the Board of Regents policy (R512);

  2. Fill out Snow College's Residency Application;

  3. Collect the required "objective evidence," as defined in Snow College's policy; and

  4. Submit the application and the evidence to the Registrar's Office by the end of the third week of the semester.

II. Application Appeals.

  1. Read both Snow College's Residency Policy and the Board of Regents policy (R512);

  2. Determine what provision you feel the Registrar did not apply correctly;

  3. Write a letter of appeal to the Vice President of Student Success (example provided below), which includes;

    • The specific provision of the College's policy under which you originally applied for residency;
    • The provision you feel the Registrar did not apply correctly; and
    • A brief explanation of why the Registrar's decision was incorrect.
  4. If allowed, collect the required "objective evidence," as defined in Snow College's policy;

  5. Submit the letter of appeal and evidence (if allowed) to the Vice President of Student Success within ten (10) days of the decision; and

  6. Notify the Registrar via email of your decision to appeal his or her decision.
