   Hardship Letter University State Resident

{Your Name}

{Your Phone #}


Dear {Admissions Personnel}:

On {date}, I was accepted into the {field} graduate program at {University Name}. However, in order to be able to attend I would like to request reconsideration of my status as a resident of {State}.

I have lived in {State} my whole life and have long dreamed of attending {University}, but in order to apply I participated in {resume-building program} in {City, State} for the past two years. I returned to {Current State} on {date}, shortly after the program ended. However, that means I have technically been a resident of {Current State} for only {amount of time}, just short of the requirement of {amount of time}.

I have invested nearly every year of my life into living, shopping, working, and paying taxes in {Current State}, and I went outside it in order to improve my experiences in the field that I plan to pursue right here. I hope that you are willing to waive this requirement and allow me to be considered as a resident of {Current State}.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to contact me at {contact information}.

Thank you,

{Sender Name}
