I've actually read the statutes and read the other posted info about getting residency. There are several very large gaps between what is contained in the statutes, and what is postulated by UConn Law's practice of students obtaining in-state tuition L2 and L3. I forget where I read about it so forgive my lack of a link for now .. it is just confusing (to me).
I really hope I don't sound like a jerk here, because I am trying to help, but here's the relevant information from the statutes:
(1) The establishment of a new domicile in this state by an emancipated person has not occurred until he has resided in this state for a period of not less than one year;
(2) No emancipated person shall be deemed to have gained residence while attending any educational institution in this state as a full-time student, as such status is defined by the governing board of such institution, in the absence of a clear demonstration that he has established domicile in the state;
So you need to demonstrate that you have established a domicile in the state, and in order to do that you need to have resided in the state for at least a year. UConn has a list of specific things you need to submit to them to prove that you have established a domicile, (available here: http://www.law.uconn.edu/bursars-office ... -residency
) but the main idea is you just need to live in CT for a year. I hope this helps- if not, maybe you could describe what you find to be confusing. I know at least one other TLS member is a UConn student who came in from out of state. Good luck!
EDIT: I just realized that I assumed that you will classify as an emancipated person...
