How to deal with out-of-state tuition??

  1. I'm not sure if anyone has discussed this on the forums before, but what do you SRNA's and CRNA's do about the out-of-state tuition that is imposed when choosing a school that is in your home state?? I have been weighingumpiron: the thought between going to school in another state or staying put if possible. Any advise on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm a little bit confused, are you saying that an in-state college is charging you out-of-state tuition?

    No, I mean moving to another state and paying their expensive tuition, because it's not your home state. How do people get around not paying the tuition that's 4 times the in-state tuition? Not sure if that clarifies it. Hope that helps. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry, I guess I didn't explain that good enough. Let's say I live in Florida, but I want to go to school in Georgia for one of their CRNA programs, how do I avoid or get around paying 4 times the in-state tuition in the state of Georgia? Hope that clears it up. Thanks for any advice.

    I think that all you can do is realize that paying out of state tuition for the first year is the reality if you choose an out-of-state school. Lots of times, you have to pay it the first year, but after that you have been in the state for a year and may become eligible for in-state tuition. Look at the school policy. I say go to whatever school accepts you and deal with the expense. You will be able to pay it all back later. That's what I am doing.

    Move there a year a head of time.

    There's really no way to avoid it.

    Check into reciprocity among the states. There are programs that negate the out-of-state tuition so you only pay the in-state costs.

    Here in the Southeast, we have the "Academic Common Market". It includes 14 states. For information, contact the Southern Regional Educational Board in Atlanta. I was able to get to it online at: .

    Good luck.

    The way I looked at your situation when I was faced with it was, you just borrow the money if this is what you truly want to do. Money should not be a factor when it can be paid back later, fairly easily.
