frogger Posted December 21, 2017 Share Posted December 21, 2017 It's my understanding that you cannot gain independent status until 24 which seems crazy to me. If my son were to move to another state and live and work there a couple years he still could not get in state tuition, correct? Even though he had been living on his own in a completely different state, working, and paying whatever state taxes they had there. It's really difficult for me to imagine since I'd bought and sold a home and had two kids by that age and lived in a different state by age 17. Perhaps I'd have more money saved up if I waited a decade or two to have him. But I'm pretty sure I can tell him that idea is not likely to work although I guess it would still work but kind of slow down his time line...a lot.
