Not a US citizen, can not do that.
Who told you that? One does not need to be a citizen to claim a state as his place of residence, permanent or otherwise. For those living here legally, most of the time it's called "Permanent Resident." I don't know the intricacies of federal law, but I have to believe that if I can claim a country as a place of permanent residence, I can do the same for a state.
besides, I'm a permanent resident, and I paid in-state tuition at UCD undergrad for the past two years.
