I have now lived in Pennsylvania for a year, while attending Penn State, and have registered to vote, obtained a PA driver's license, and pay Pennsylvania state taxes. Am I now a resident for tuition purposes?
Generally, unless a student has 12 months of continuous residence in the state prior to enrollment, the student is considered a non-resident.
The 12-month requirement cannot be met while attending Penn State - the student is assumed to be in the Commonwealth for educational purposes.
Although the student might be considered a resident of the Commonwealth, the student would remain as a non-resident for tuition purposes, unless there was clear evidence that the student's circumstances had changed and that a permanent, independent domicile in Pennsylvania has been established.
