Request for Exemption from UCM's Residency Requirement Form

Traditional Students:

Living on campus helps you meet new people, get involved in activities and can boost your GPA. For these reasons and more, UCM requires all students to reside on campus for the first two years and be on specific meal plans unless they meet established criteria:
• 21 years of age or older
• Married
• More than 60 UCM-accepted credit hours (48 hours for new transfer students)
• Commute from home while living with a parent, grandparent, or court ordered legal guardian permanently (within 65 mile driving distance as further listed on the exemption form).


Please see other criteria listed on the General Exemption Form


Transfer Students:

UCM requires transfer students who have less than 48 UCM accepted credit hours to reside on campus (unless they are 21 years of age or older OR meet other exemption criteria listed on the general exemption form).

Transfer students may apply for exemption if they have 48 or more UCM accepted hours or have a granted associate's degree awarded to them.  

Transfers students who are exempt due to having 48 credit hours MUST reach 60 hours or 21 years of age by the following semester after being exempt, or they will be required to reside  on campus due to the standard 60 hour requirement for general UCM students.


Students filing for exemption two weeks into the semester for which they are requesting exemption will be billed a processing fee of $50.
