However, the scholarship amount brings the COA down to significantly below resident tuition. I'm wondering if after a year of living in the state, will I have to get resident tuition? The scholarship seems to build in incentive to NOT get the resident tuition rate, but I don't know if it's possible to avoid. Any insight?
I talked to an admissions rep about that, and apparently its pretty hard to qualify for in-state tuition at Minnesota. It's not like other schools where just living in the state for 12 months will qualify you for it. A small number of students have been successful at getting in-state tuition by getting MN license plates, buying a house, etc, but basically, don't count on it.
