If you are a service member, you must complete a Residency Affidavit to apply for residency. You must include a letter showing assignment to an Oregon unit and proof of Oregon residence. Here is an example of a unit letter to submit. Email complete packet to Residency Officer.
Please do not include the following documents with the application packet:
Section 702 of the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 [effective July 1, 2015] as codified in 38 U.S.C. 3679(c). In 2016 Congress passed Public Law 114-315 [effective July 1, 2017], which modifies 38 U.S.C. 3679(c); in 2018 Congress passed Public Law 115-251, which amended title 38 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) 3679(c).
Choice Act eligible students will continue to receive in-state tuition rates after they have used all of their Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits or Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry benefits as long as the student remains continuously enrolled. If there is a breack in enrollment, or if the student changes their program of study after exhausting their VA benefits, they will no longer receive in-state rates. To request resident tuition rate under the Choice Act, complete this form.
Veterans who do not qualify under the Choice Act will likely quailify under HB 2158 (2013) and HB 4021 (2014) section 1. ORS 352.375 or HB 2787. More information for those programs can be found on the State of Oregon Tuition Programs.
