Well, if you file in Florida, you're likely doing it for a couple reasons:
1. You live there
2. You don't want to pay city or state income tax (Michigan has it, Florida doesn't)
You can't tell the IRS you reside in 1 state, thus qualifying yourself for in-state tuition in Florida, and then decide later that you'd rather get in-state tuition in Michigan.
That completely contradicts this entire thread. It should be locked as it's false.
Yet reported on the news? With the veterans association filing a formal appeal? You may not like it, but this story is legit.
laconophilia is everywhere...
But this is assuming that military personnel are filing in Florida. What is much more likely is that they're filing wherever they're based.
Here's the article. Either the veterans aren't telling the whole story about their residency status while in the military or the University is violating it's own policies.
The sophomore went before university leaders late Thursday afternoon on behalf ...
A large percent of the military never change their residence. You don't even have to renew your driver license. There's no reason to change unless you are attending school where you are stationed.
I mentioned Florida because someone else said that's where they filed when in the military.
It doesn't really matter which other state it is. If they live somewhere else, file somewhere else, pay taxes somewhere else, why should they expect to get in-state tuition in Michigan?
The GI Bill credits are portable, but you shouldn't be eligible for in-state tuition in multiple locations IMO.
Or taxes, or you think you're going to live there forever, or....
There are many reasons (don't forget we're talking about 17-21 year-olds, by and large) to change your residence. Wiser heads might say "Don't," but it does happen occasionally.
I agree with your larger point that most never change their residency, though.
Thank you, Denicos.
Then channel four, like you, is full of shit. Thing is, there should be an exemption for any veteran at all universities. You serve, and that college gets federal funds, you pay in state tuition.
Sounds to me like you're the one that's full of shit. Does MSU allow in state tuition to any soldier no matter where they're domiciled?
No, but MSU's policy is more generous than Michigan's:
"A student, the spouse of a student, or the parent of a dependent student who, is a veteran of at least 12 consecutive months of active United States military service prior to honorable separation, or as a member of the Reserve or National Guard, was mobilized for at least 12 months of active military service, and who moves to Michigan with the intent to become a domiciliary of Michigan within 90 days following discharge or return to non-active duty, shall be classified as in-state. "
Out-Of-State Tuition Regulations
Good for MSU, but this thread is completely false. The OP stated that UM wasn't giving in state tuition to soldiers who had been on active duty out of the state 6 months. That is not true at all.
No, but they should. That's what I'd want if I was king of education in America. And they would also get lifelong jhealth care if they were ever in any active duty getting shot at.
That doesn't lesson the fact that the news is reporting uofm screwing veterans and you saying it's false and to lock the thread. It's not false. It's what they did and it's a news story.
Did you read Stoetzer's post on the last page?
Well they screwed that kid over and it's a news story. Would you like us not to talk about it?
Yeah, and you don't think uofm violated it in this regard?
Oh I see you have a comaint about the six months. I wrote what I thought I heard from the news story. The story still matched the headline.
Well, I didn't go to UM Dearborn so I have no idea how they run that campus. But obviously either an error was made by accident regarding his residency or perhaps he changed his residence to wherever he was based. But your initial post was flat out false.

Tell me how you think an error was made by accident? How do you know this?
I read the policy. It's either by accident or he changed his residence. You think the University has a vendetta against him?
I think they absolutely were trying to get more money from him. Vendetta? Their greed is what the problem is. You fill out those things and they can clearly see he was a veteran. That's why they screwed them. The story implies that veterans were dropping out like crazy, not just him.
If they only did it to him it would be an accident. If it is being done to others as well it's systemic.

Lol @ this pissing match between y2k and Dwags
Duck dynasty isn't on. MSU isn't playing and my wife is already in bed cause she doesn't feel good. What else should I do?
It isn't just him, slugger. The article says 40% of the veteran presence at UM Dearborn has left because of this rule.
You not liking it doesn't mean it's not true.
The rule affects ~700 students each year. But yeah, probably just a mistake...
While my dad served in the Navy for 23 years his address of residence was at his sisters farm in St. Johns the entire time...This includes while he was in Vietnam, Italy, Diego Garcia, Okinawa, and various US states including Tennessee, California, Virginia, and Hawaii.
PS While in Hawaii he took some classes at one of the community college. Not sure which address he used but he was considered "in state" obviously.
