U of M determined residency

<p>On wolverine access, it says U of M determined residency: out of state. I have lived in Michigan since I was 1 and listed that I am in-state. I was born in Canada and do not have U.S. citizenship, but I have a resident alien card which got sent in to U of M through the common app. I also have no school ties or anything outside of Michigan. I am planning on calling them, but has this happened to anyone else? Is it going to affect my admissions decision? I applied EA.</p>

<p>Did you file the Residency Application? If you did not you might need to, but call on Monday and find out. Here's some reading before you call....</p>

<p>Residency</a> - Office of the Registrar</p>

<p>If you have a Green Card, then it should not be a problem being considered a Michigan State resident.....</p>

<p>I haven't done that yet, but I will ask when I call.</p>

<p>Funny, I was born in Bolivia and have lived outside the US for about half of my life. Ive only been back in MI for a little over a year, yet I'm listed in-state. Does that mean I don't have to file for residency?</p>

<p>So here's kind of a stupid question, but since we're on the subject of residency - how do we see our residency status once we accept admission? Ever since I paid the enrollment deposit, my residency doesn't show up anymore... prior to accepting it said 'pending' and I self-reported as in-state. Anyone have any experience with this?</p>

<p>Ambery, you will want to supply the residency/registrar's office with the form and complete documentation showing a) that you've permanently lived in MI/ US; b) attended school in Mi/U.S.; c) have Green Card in good status; d) own property or pay taxes in MI; and e) hold no further ties (no bank accounts, don't own property) in Canada.</p>

<p>My son is a Canadian citizen by birth who attended middle and hs in the US, lived here, worked here, had a valid green card, etc. and had to go through the process. In the end, it didn't hurt him in terms of admission; and in the end he was rightly declared in-state.</p>

<p>Best wishes!</p>

After several phone calls, it got all sorted out and I didn't have to fill out the form. It now says I am in-state.</p>
