<p>I'm a resident of Michigan and will graduate from a Michigan high school. For my undergrad, I'd like to move out of state because of scholarship opportunities for National Merit Finalists.</p>
<p>Will I be able to come back to Michigan for my graduate degree and still be classified as a resident?</p>
<p>This is what the University of Michigan has to say about it:
The following circumstances and activities, though not conclusive or exhaustive, may lend support to a claim to eligibility for resident classification if all other applicable Guidelines are met:
■ both parents/parents-in-law (in the case of divorce, one parent/parent-in-law) permanently domiciled in Michigan as demonstrated by permanent employment in the state, establishment of a primary household in Michigan, and severance of out-of-state ties. Applicant must also show severance of out-of-state ties.
<p>My parents would obviously be staying in Michigan, but the fact that it says this "may lend support to a claim to eligibility" makes it sound very vague to me. I'm also not sure what the "other applicable Guidelines" are exactly. </p>
<p>I know I'd have to apply to qualify for resident tuition after studying in another state, but it's hard to get a conclusive answer from the information on the website. Anyone have experience with this sort of situation?</p>
