College Question. - February 11th 2009, 09:33 PM

I want to go to an out of state college, preferabbly in California even though that place is already over populated. But I'm not a California citizen.

My question is, say I move to Cali, if I enroll to be a California Citizen and become one

Do I Get the same public school discount as any other Californian Citizen? Or do I have to be there a certain amount of time?

Edit: My step mother said that there's not a difference between citizen college and non-citizen in a college. True or False?

So where did everyone go?
And you don't even know
So don't pretend that you do

It's just a set up
For all the failures
Always playing after something cool

Usually, you have to reside in the state of the college for a year before you are considered a resident of that state. You have to have a drivers license and be getting mail at an address in that state. You'll have to check the school's requirements for in-state tuition.

You get student discounts in college using your student ID you get from your university.

But don't just go to college somewhere because of general location. Discounts or no discounts, going to university is an expensive undertaking-- needs to me on more of a basis than "well... it's in California"

It depends. Public universities sometimes discriminate against out-of-state residents but not always. Public will because they won't get the tax funding. Usually the universities will have residency requirements listed on their admission site.

Beware of the cats.
