    All state schools charge OOS tuition. Some will waive the OOS differential if a student is from a state with which it has an enrolment agreement. Other schools will waive the OOS differential if the student meets published GPA and SAT/ACT thresholds.

    Actually this isn’t true. There are some state schools, usually directionals, that do not charge an OOS rate. I’m asking for people who know of such schools to please list them. (And of course I know that some OOS schools have the policies that you mentioned.)

    Western Illinois University has the same tuition for OOS as instate.
    And it also gives merit scholarships for rather modest stats to further reduce costs.

    Southern Mississippi's OOS tuition is just a couple of thousand dollars more for OOS than instate. It's free for students with a 30ACT or above.

    University of Minnesota - Morris used to have no out-of-state extra tuition, but now has out-of-state extra tuition of $2,054, raising the overall cost estimate from $24,860 (in-state) to $26,914 (out-of-state). For MSEP students, the out-of-state extra tuition is $1,040, with an overall cost estimate of $25,900. Some places have reciprocity agreements that allow students from there to pay the in-state tuition.

    Although University of Wyoming has OOS rates, it may surprise some Illinois residents that the OOS COA at U of Wyoming is roughly what IL in-state costs.

    Estimated UW Direct Costs = $29,158 for OOS

    http://www.uwyo.edu/sfa/cost-of-attendance/index.html

    U of Wyoming offers the Brown and Gold Commitment Scholarship for non-resident first year students. It's not clear to me whether this is a four year scholarship or one year.

    The scholarship amount is based on ACT/SAT scores and HS Unweighted GPA and comes in four levels: $10.5k, $7k, $4k, $2K

    A fantastic deal is FSU ‘s first year abroad program. You gotta pay $45k for that first year as OOS. But then you get in state tuition!

    Also, look at some of the other Mich directionals. I have heard (but not checked) that some other Mich directionals also have the same rate for IS and OOS.
