Since we will be married before my second year, and will have established residency for over a year, the way the policy is written seems to suggest that in-state tuition should be attainable. Anyone have more insight on the topic?
I wouldn't count on it.
You have to be an independent student, number one. You have to also show that you moved for reasons other than school. Considering finance took the position before you were married (or on the same 1040), that may not work, because YOU, independent of a legal relationship with HIM/HER, came here for school. Although you may be engaged, that is not a legally recognized relationship, such as a domestic partnership.
On top of that, you have to show residency (ie. lease or purchase of a home), GA drivers license, and the intention or desire of staying in the state after school.
