Online Process

Your residency application will be completed through Cherwell, our digital platform. Your username and password are the same ones you use to access your myZou account.

You’ll need to upload the required documents from the residency checklist (see links to the checklist below) to Cherwell. For best results, We recommend uploading all files as PDFs.

Once you have uploaded the required documents to Cherwell, you’ll be able to submit them with your application electronically. When you apply, there will be a $250 non-refundable processing fee added to your student account.

Follow the link below to submit your Fall 2021 residency petition in Cherwell. The deadline to submit your petition is October 1, 2021.
