Employee and Spouse/Dependent Residency Exception

University employees whose appointment for pay purposes is for half-time 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 the University of Arkansas shall also be considered as residents for fee purposes.

Post doctoral fellows, resident doctors, and interns employed by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and graduate students and graduate assistants are considered students and are not considered employees for the purpose of this policy.
