Step 5: Residency Reclassification Status & Decisions
Please note that due to high volume, there will be extended processing times.
You can monitor the status of your reclassification application through your My Buckeye Link. You will receive an email notification when your eligibility has been determined, or if additional information is needed. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide a date when your application will be processed. Please be aware we are working hard to process applications accurately and quickly. Your status in Buckeye Link indicates the current status of your application.
Status inquiries and multiple follow up messages delay processing time. We understand your desire to receive a decision quickly and appreciate your patience as we work to best assist you.
Check the Status of Your Application
Please verify that you have enrolled for the term and submitted all requested documentation on your Residency Reclassification Form.
Processing of your application only begins when these two conditions are met:
- You are enrolled for the term in which you are filing your residency application
- All required documentation has been received
You can view your Residency Application Status and Document List by selecting Residency in the dropdown selection menu within the Personal Information section as shown in steps 1-3 in the step by step instructions.
If you are having issues logging into your My Buckeye Link, you can contact the Office of Technology and Digital Innovation (OTDI) at 614-688-HELP or 8HELP@osu.edu.
This status will appear once you have completed the Online Residency Form questionnaire and remain until all requested documents have been received.
Ready for Review
This status will appear once all items on your document list have been received. This means that your application is ready to be processed, and a specialist will review it in the order it was received. Please note that due to high volume, there will be extended processing times. We understand your desire to receive a decision and appreciate your patience. We will contact you if additional information is needed.
Review in Progress
This status will appear when your reclassification application is being reviewed.

This status will appear if any additional information or documents are needed to complete your review. Please pay careful attention to the "notes to student" section (located below your document list) for more detailed information.

Approved – Conditional
This status will appear if your residency status was temporarily approved based on the Residency Classification C-3 or Residency Classification E-1. Your student record will be updated for the semester/term, and your tuition and fees will be recalculated and reflected on an updated Statement of Account. Please note that this status is valid for a single term only, and these classification types require additional applications to maintain resident status.
This status will appear if your request has been denied according to the requirements as defined in the Ohio Revised and Administrative Codes. A detailed explanation of your denial will be included in the "Notes to Student" section of the Online Residency Form. If your application is denied, you do have an opportunity to appeal and present new information. Please review the Residency Appellate Review Process for details. Instructions are included in the denial notes.
This status will appear if you have not submitted the requested documents by the published deadline for the specified semester/term. You must submit a new application for a future semester/term and submit the documentation requested for consideration. Information from a past application will not be transferred.
