Yellow Square Means In-State Tuition is Medium Difficult Difficulty

Why don’t more people go live in Montana?  It’s a very cool place and also happens to be a state where earning in-state residency is a definite possibility.  If you’re hoping to do nothing and stumble upon in-state, then sorry, that’s not going to happen.  But if you’re willing to commit to the state and demonstrate you’re a working adult in Montana for primary reasons other than solely attending a university, then keep reading.

You can expect part-time school during your domicile period, a decent part-time job, and part financial independence.  In-state isn’t for everyone and maybe it’s not in the cards for you in Montana; also every university has its own policies and flavor when it comes the residency rules and implementation. Nevertheless, you may want to explore the links below to in-state overviews for universities in Montana.
