Choosing a college where you qualify for in-state residency can cut the cost of college tuition. Don't forget to check your state's rules for in-state residency. Every state has its own rules about what makes someone eligible for in-state tuition. The most common requirement is that students must have lived in the state for a full year before starting school.
