Is there any way I can get in-tution for a non-resident freshman at Colorado State University?
A person I talked to at my high school told me that she is getting an in-state tuition for an out of state university and I was wondering if Colorado State University did anything like this. This school is one of my top schools and even with scholarships the total cost for one year is still really expensive. #Colorado-state-university #csu #scholarships #college-tuition
Christina recommends the following next steps:
Look into what is required to become a resident in Colorado. You may be able to pay out of state tuition your first year, and simultaneously apply for residency in Colorado, allowing your to be eligible for in state tuition for your subsequent years. Each state has different qualifications to become a resident. Even if you have to work for 6-12 months in order to gain residency and take time off school, I would still consider it as the cost difference between both tuition rates for 3-4 years is very significant. The additional years of paying student loans to cover the marginal increase in cost between both tuition rates will be much longer than the time period needed to work to establish residency.
Common market is another idea, if your state doesn't have a major that you are interested in, some out of state schools will offer in state tuition for you to do that major there.
Scholarships are more available to out of state students - make sure you are looking into all options (sports, academics, etc).
