In state rates for you in other states

High school students are often interested in looking at college programs that are located out of their home state.  This is a concern for parents trying to keep college costs down. It is often true that going to college out of your home state translates into higher tuition rates for your child as an out of state student.  Most states give in-state students a discounted tuition rate called in-state tuition at state colleges and universities.  This is a benefit of being a state resident.
 
It is possible to go to an out of state college and pay in-state rates in some circumstances.  The Southern Regional Education Board is an alliance of states that have cooperative agreements that allow students from participating states in-state tuition for certain curricula.  Specifically, the states allow students to get in-state tuition for curricula not offered in their state.  Each state decides which curricula are permitted and there is an application process for each student who wants to take advantage of this benefit.
 
 
Another way to avoid out-of-state tuition rates at state colleges not in your state is to look at private colleges which often charge one rate to both in state and out of state students. Although tuition is higher at private colleges, private colleges often have private scholarships to help reduce the cost of attendance for families.
