For the sake of admissions (not tuition), how long do you have to reside in a state to be considered an IS applicant? I'm moving from NJ to OH in a month, and I'm applying to public schools (2016 cycle) in each. I understand that it's usually takes a year to declare residency for lower tuition, but I don't know if admissions preference is the same policy, or if I'll be considered IS immediately when I update my address.

It varies by state, but the general rule of thumb is 12 months of residency with attempts to establish domicile - getting an OH license, registering to vote/voting in OH, etc...

You also generally have to be in the state for non-educational purposes and exhibit gainful employment of some sort.

I'm moving there for work, so it's not just to be considered IS. Thanks for all the input!
