Filing an Oklahoma income tax return does not automatically qualify an individual as an Oklahoma resident. You must meet the criteria for Oklahoma resident status as defined in the OSRHE Residency Policy.
Not necessarily. Resident status is based on the location of your domicile, which is considered to be your true, fixed, permanent home where you habitually reside. It is the place where you intend to remain and to which you expect to return. Since domicile has two components, residence and intent to remain indefinitely, a person can have more than one residence but only one domicile.
No. It is the student’s responsibility to petition for residency reclassification once you have met the criteria for Oklahoma resident status as defined in the OSRHE Residency Policy.
Attendance at an educational institution, albeit a continuous and long-term experience, is interpreted as temporary residence; therefore, a student neither gains nor loses residence status solely by such attendance.
The legal residence of a dependent person is that of his/her parents, or the legal residence of the parent who has legal custody or the parent with whom the student habitually resides. If the student is under the care of those other than his/her parents, the legal residence is that of his/her legal guardian.
If you are a dependent, your residency status is that of the legal residence of the parent who has legal custody or the parent with whom the student habitually resides. In addition to completing a Petition for Oklahoma Residency, you will need to provide supporting documentation of your dependent status or of primary care, custody and support by the parent residing in Oklahoma.
No. If you are considered a dependent, your residency status is that of your parent or guardian with legal custody.
Having relatives who are alumni of NSU is not a factor in determining your residency status. You must meet the definition of an Oklahoma resident as defined in the OSRHE Residency Policy.

If your spouse already holds Oklahoma residence status, you may be eligible for Oklahoma residency status. You should submit a Petition for Oklahoma Residency to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment, along with a copy of your marriage license and other supporting documentation.
