How to Earn In-State Tuition at an Out-of-State College
In State Angels think there should be a resource that demystifies the process---shedding light on how to legitimately and predictably earn in-state status. In-State Angels hopes to be that resource with information and solutions designed to help students explore and earn in-state tuition in states and universities across the country.
While not every student is going to be a good candidate, those who are stand to save enormously and it can make all the difference between a student attending their 3rd choice college vs. 1st choice college.
What makes a good candidate for in-state?
The process favors those who are more mature and independent than average.
Top factors that contribute to success:
- a sincere intention to remain indefinitely in a new state after college
- being financially responsible and at least partly self-supporting with student loans or otherwise
- willingness to work at least a little bit while in school
- openness to potentially going to school less than full-time for at least a year
The more these factors are true for a student, the greater number of colleges are unlocked to a student.
