Instate Tuition - Question
« on: January 13, 2009, 02:48:27 PM »
Hey all,

Regarding in-state tuition, SIU-Carbondale allows for students out of state to apply for in-state tuition after six months, which drops the rate from 28k to 12-13k. My question is in everyones experience when they say out of state do they mean just from a different jurisdiction within the USA or do mean everyone including Foreign Students like myself (from Canada)? I would like all your opinions.

I think that in-state tuition only applies to U.S. citizens. I'm pretty sure you'd fall under the "international" student category. I don't know for sure though, any international students want to chime in?

One easy way to find out: Call the admissions department or international students office at SIU.
