Hampton University: In-state vs. Out-of-State Tuition

Choosing a college where you qualify for in-state tuition can cut the cost of college tuition. Take the time to check your state's criteria for in-state tuition. Each state has different requirements to qualify as in-state resident. The most common requirement is that students must have lived in the state for a full year before starting school. There may be additional requirements too, depending on where you live.
