Out of state fees?

photoforrealphotoforreal Registered User Posts: 45 Junior Member
Do out of state fees incur after you have been in the state for 6-12months. I want to go to school in NYC and it takes one year to gain residency. Will I not be paying out of state fees after that first year or will I have to since I originally applied from another state. Am I always subjected to these out of state fees? Thanks!

    No, it doesn't work that way. If someone goes to an OOS public univ, then they’re in the state for education purposes and not eligible for instant rates at the public univ.

    Besides, you’re wanting to go to Parsons ...there are no OOS fees for parsons. Parsons is a private univ, not a public one.

    Usually you are always subjected to the fees.

    If your school is private, then it doesn't matter if you are in-state or out-of-state because everyone pays the same costs. It doesn't matter that you are OOS.
    These costs will be charged over four years.

    It sounds like you cannot afford this school.

    Did you research the cost of this school before you applied?
    NYC is a very expensive city. Add to that, the cost of attending and it will be very expensive. There are very few schools that give full rides anymore. The schools just don't have the money for everyone who wants to go.

    Okay thank you. Yes I did my research before applying to these schools but thought I would get better aid considering my high grades, scores, and portfolio. Guess I was wrong.
  • aunt beaaunt bea Registered User Posts: 9,221 Senior Member
    The universities have NPC's (Net price Calculators) on their websites that tell you what to expect in financial aid if your parents income is pretty straightforward.

    The calculators are pretty accurate with estimates about how much you may receive in funding. The schools have become pretty competitive, so most students do have high grades, test scores and good activities, but if the schools have limited budgets, they can only give so much.
  • photoforrealphotoforreal Registered User Posts: 45 Junior Member
    Yeah my parents have only a few hundred dollars in their account so... yeah. I really thought I had what it took to get a full ride. What do they use all this money for anyway? 200k+ for four years? Where is it going towards?
  • aunt beaaunt bea Registered User Posts: 9,221 Senior Member
    Private universities aren't funded by their states, so the student fees have to cover the costs of the universities:
    the professor's salaries,
    very costly liability insurance,
    the equipment: furniture, copiers, microphones
    power, water, utilities,
    computer labs, computer programs charged on a yearly basis
    health services,
    Mental Health Services
    commuter buses
    food,
    security employees and security vehicles,
    dorm repairs,
    physical plant (sidewalks, greenery, driveways)
    etc.
    It's not cheap.

    Unless your parents have a physical presence in NYS for SUNY or NYC for CUNY as long as you are under 24 you will not get in state tuition at the public colleges and universities. You are a dependent student for NYS aid until you are 35 years old. If your parents do not live in NYS you will never be eligible for TAP or an Excelsior scholarship.

    You forgot to do your research in regards to AID. You forgot to run their net price calculators. You didn’t seem to even look at cost because you assumed that there were OOS costs at this private.

    Btw...art schools are notorious for not giving much aid ....simply because they don’t have any money to give.

    Aid has to come from somewhere. Most schools do not have a treasure chest of money to hand out free rides or anything close to it. Just like your family struggles to pay bills, colleges struggle to pay THEIR bills (salaries, electricity, maintenance, etc, etc.)

    What are your grades and test scores? Maybe there’s other options for you.
  • photoforrealphotoforreal Registered User Posts: 45 Junior Member
    I was actually asking about OOS fees for a different school so you were actaully assuming. I did do the net price calls but again I thought I would get better aid. I know two people with full rides to art schools so I did feel as though I stood a chance. My grades and test scores are pointless now if I can't pay to attend. I'll just do community. Thanks for help.

    Actually there are probably better schools than community college for an accomplished artist that still accept applications and in May there'll be a list of colleges that miscalculated yield.
    So, apply to community college (choose one with an honors program and am articulation agreement with your flagship) but if you give us your stats we can point you in the direction of these colleges so you can start applying.
    Should we assume your etc is zero? What's your state of residence? Those will be key parameters.

    Well I'm still waiting to hear back from two colleges. What's etc? As in etcetera?

    Oh a typo. About 11k is my EFC but in reality my EFC is like $200.

    ^ I don't know what you mean by "in reality my EFC is like $200". EFC is a calculation as to whether you qualify for a Pell Grant. With an $11K EFC you don't. You can borrow $5500 as a freshman. That's it.
