Do I count as In State or Out of State?

All my life I lived in California. If I attend college in New York for example, then when I apply to Medical School in California, would I be counted as In State or Out of State?

I agree with the above sentiments: if you go to university in New York and you are a California resident, you will be out of state for NY. However if you enroll in university in California, you will be considered in-state.

If you did not go to city hall in your hometown in California and indicated that you have moved, you can still be considered an resident of California. I am in the process of moving to another state for a doctoral degree and plan to indicate I am leaving the state but it is up to you what you want to do. Some cities will automatically classify you as not leaving in the city or state if you do not vote in local elections.

Hello!

If I understand your question correctly you are from CA, went to undergrad in NY and now are applying for grad school in CA? The big thing would be whether or not your family still lives in CA and you use their address to send mail and or you still have a CA drivers license. If so then you would defiantly be considered In-State because college is considered temporary so unless you got a NY drivers license then you might have some trouble there but a CA license, have family with a CA address you would be In-State. I would say simply calling the school and asking might be the best option also, wouldn't hurt to make sure.

Good luck applying!

Hi Jam! I believe you should still be in state for California. A lot of students travel out of state for college, but if you hold permanent residency in state then you should be fine. I would still recommend to complete a quick google search on in state vs out of state for medical schools, but from what I know if you are still in state for California, your family is there, you are there, you lived most of your life there, then it should be okay. Also, check out this link below, perfect for your question!

Best of luck!

Anastasia’s Answer

Hi,

If you go to school in the same state as your permanent address, you are considered In-State. If the state of your school differs from your permanent address then you are considered out-of-state
