An individual must have been domiciled in Colorado for one calendar year before he or she is entitled to in-state tuition. A domicile is a person's true, fixed and permanent home. Having a domicile in Colorado involves more than mere physical presence or "residence" in the state. In order to establish a domicile for tuition purposes, there must be 1) physical presence for at least 12 months within the state along with 2) demonstrated intent to make Colorado one’s permanent home. Intent is demonstrated by several kinds of connections with the state dated one year prior to the beginning of classes. Please contact the Program Administrator for more details.
The MSMHA program highly recommends that each student have a laptop computer with the following specifications:Critical

• 64-bit quad core CPU (Intel Core i7 or equivalent)
• OpenGL-compatible graphics card (with at least 1 GB RAM)
• 256 GB (or larger) SSD drive (solid state drives are much faster than ordinary drives, but hold less data)
