Domicile is the present, fixed home of an individual to which one returns following temporary absences and at which one intends to remain indefinitely. Domiciliary intent, together with physical presence, establishes domicile. Evidence of domiciliary intent includes, among other things, paying resident Virginia income taxes, obtaining a Virginia driver’s license and registering your vehicle here. Domicile must be established by the student (or the parent, legal guardian, or spouse) for at least one year immediately preceding the first day of classes.
