US Parent Teaching Abroad/ In-State Tuition

Post by wilcoman »

Have any teachers from the US, sent a child back to the US for college and received in-state tuition.

Checking the required factors for Pennsylvania there are 3 factors they consider for in-state tuition:

1. Parent has a driver's license in that state: Check
2. Parent pays state taxes: Check
3. Parent has a property deed in their name or a lease agreement for at least a year within the state: I don't have this one, but my parents live in Pennsylvania
Thinking about how to get around this last one, or if anyone has any experience with this. Thanks.

Use your parents address or rent/lease a storage unit and/or a PO Box.

Yes, we did. Minnesota. We do own a house there and pay state and property taxes and have records of all our bills. It varies a lot from state to state, though...he looked at Utah (very easy to get residency) and Iowa (couldn't do it). In some cases, it's the family that matters and if they meet qualifications, in others it's the student themselves. The age of the student may matter, too, as in is the student a dependent or used as a tax deduction.

In our state, the student has to graduate from an in-state high school to qualify. Didn't work out for us
