I was wondering if, after the first year (or two) when you become a new state resident, you are allowed to switch tuition prices for public schools? Is there a limit to how many years beforehand you were a state resident to get the in state tuition?

Thanks

That varies by state. Some states don't allow you to be a full-time student (not working) and establish "residence" for tuition purposes. You should check with the institution in which you are interested. There is usually a set of guidelines or a checklist that is used for this purpose.
