How do I appeal a denied PA residency reclassification petition?

A preliminary determination regarding a student's domicile will be made by the Admissions officer for the student's school/college. This determination is subject to review by the University's Residency Certification Officer, who may either approve or modify the preliminary determination. A student may appeal the Residency Certification Officer's denial of a reclassification by directing a written appeal to the University Residency Appeals Board (Appeals Board) within 30 calendar days from the date of the written notification of the Residency Certification Officer's decision. The student may request a hearing before the Appeals Board. The Appeals Board will notify the student of its decision in writing. The determination of the Appeals Board is final and constitutes an exhaustion of the student's appeal rights within the University.
