Does anyone else have to complete the Residence Questionnaire?

sophalophsophaloph 51 replies10 threads Junior Member
I've been living internationally during the last 4 years because of my dad's job. We're all Washington state residents, though - we still own our house, my parents both have Washington State driver licenses, we've lived in Washington for 3 years prior to moving, etc - but I received an email saying that I need to fill out a Residence Questionnaire to verify my residency.

I've got a couple of q's about the form -

1) What do I put for 'ID Number'? Is it asking for my SSN?
2) On the "Class Standing" portion, it says "School: ___________". Do I write anything for the "School" portion?

Hope someone can help! Thanks in advance.

    I believe that for the first question it's asking you for your UW ID. But if you don't have it then maybe SSN would be an alternative.
    For the second question - are you applying as a freshmen or a transfer student? If you are a freshmen, write down your current standing in your high school. If you are a transfer - write your current standing in your community college. If neither applies to you, then just leave it blank. Maybe including a letter of explanation would help.

    I had to submit the questionnaire too after I got accepted because I was listed as a non resident even though I'd lived here since 07 :/

    Does anybody know, is it necessary to submit the questionnaire in order to be considered for the grants and scholarships offered to WA residents only?

    @schan53 Did they verify you as a resident after you submitted your questionnaire??

    @seatac No idea about that :( If you're already recognized as a WA resident, I don't think it'd be necessary?

    Well, I don't know... that's the problem.. I don't know whether they will recognize me as a WA resident before I submit my questionnaire.

    @sophaloph: I had to turn in lots of documents showing my residency (state ID, transcripts since I went to community college here, the apartment lease form, bank statement, etc) along with the questionnaire form. But after like a couple weeks and before the quarter started they emailed me to let me know that they verified my residency.

    @schan53 Yeah, we had to send a whole bunch of documents as well... but the thing is, we scanned all of ours and sent them in, and they responded saying that we need to mail the original documents (which I honestly don't see the point of). The date in which my entire residency verification process is complete won't affect the date my admission notification will come out, will it?

    No, it shouldn't. I did a little research and it looks like universities generally ask to prove the residency by the beginning of the first quarter (so that you won't have to pay increased tuition). I guess that they would consider everyone who claims to be a resident as a resident for the process of financial aid and admission, but you will have to prove it later.
    And they also probably ask you for the originals to see the signatures and keep everything on file...
