    For out of state students, does OSU lock you into the out of state tuition for 4 years, or can you claim state residency after a year and pay the in state tuition afterwards?

    Thanks!

    You have to live in Oklahoma for 12 months (it may be a bit less, but I don't think so) without being a student to qualify for in-state tuition. This means that you're stuck with out-of-state for the 4 years. You can double check this with Dana Livingston.

    There are only two ways to change your residency status as an out of state student. The first is to be employed for 40 hours a week for one year in the state of oklahoma. Not a good option. Or Marry a resident of Oklahoma; which fits the same criteron as above <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> So when you get here just get hitched and you will be all set.

If so, I don't think it would be that bad of an option considering how much tuition $$ would be saved.
