    IN STATE RESIDENCY FOR MILITARY 

    Active-duty members of the armed forces of the United States and Canada on permanent duty station in Colorado and their dependents are eligible for in-state status, regardless of domicile or length of residence in Colorado. The military member must have reported to a duty station in the State, as certified by their military command, by the first day of class of the applicable academic term. 

    • Unless the student meets the requirement for domicile in Colorado for one year as detailed above, this eligibility expires as of the first term that begins after retirement or loss of dependent status, except that if student is a Colorado high school graduate and the parent was on active duty in Colorado during the students senior year, the student qualifies for in-state tuition. 
    • Military dependents continuously enrolled in a Colorado college continue to qualify for in-state tuition if the military member is transferred outside Colorado but not if the parent retires. 
    • Unless the student meets the requirement for domicile in Colorado for one year as detailed above, this eligibility expires as of the first term that begins after retirement or loss of dependent status.

    MILITARY MEMBERS DOMICILED IN COLORADO

    To retain domicile during an absence from Colorado due to military orders, military personnel must maintain Colorado as their state of legal residence for tax purposes, and voters must maintain Colorado voter registration. Military personnel may retain legal residence in their original state, or they may establish a new legal residence in a state in which they reside due to military orders. They may not establish domicile in Colorado while residing elsewhere or while being physically present in the State only on a temporary basis. Persons domiciled in Colorado for one year who enter active duty military service, and who return permanently to Colorado within 6 months of discharge, and their dependents, qualify for in-state tuition regardless of changes of domicile while on active duty.
