Green Square Means In-State Tuition is Least Difficult Difficulty

Getting in-state in Utah is exceptionally do-able, but it does require more than most people are willing to do.  As much as the process, after being understood, is palatable and straightforward, it is also strict and unforgiving.  Committing to Utah and being in Utah is first and foremost, you need to really plant your flag and demonstrate strong ties to the state.  Financially, you do not need to be close to as financially independent as is required almost everywhere else so that’s a big bonus.  If you are hoping to go to school full-time, work just a little, but still get pretty substantial help paying for school from parents or otherwise, Utah may be for you.  Deadlines matter!  Required is forethought, a detailed plan, execution, and follow-through.
