In-State Tuition for Illinois Residents?

I've heard from multiple people that UI is giving In-State tuition to people from Illinois. Is there any truth to this and how would you go about getting that? I would love to go to Iowa but the cost is probably too high if its out of state.

    From the Iowa website (had to dig a bit to find it):

    Frequently Asked Questions about Resident Classification
    for Tuition and Fee Purposes
    Does Iowa have a tuition reciprocity agreement with my state?
    No, Iowa does not have general tuition reciprocity agreements with any state. This includes (but
    is not limited to): Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

    That's too bad, especially because I heard that University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is raising it in state tuition to 20,000. Now even public state schools are expensive.

    Good luck!

    Total costs at University of Illinois (including room and board) are around $20,000 -- not tuition alone.
