Ive been wondering this due to tuition costs of out of state schools. Im currently a Florida resident but most of the schools I would like to go to are out of my state. If I get accepted to an out of state school will I pay out-of-state tuition for the full 4 years or just for the first? I ask this because I noticed that residency is usually established as residing in that state for the past 12 months. So does that make me a resident after my first year and then I transition to in-state tuition? or do they only decide residency at initial application time? sorry for the rediculous question.
