If my parents are residents of the state of Texas, can I be considered a resident if I live out of state?
Generally, a student with legal status, who moves to Texas in order to reside with a natural parent or court-appointed legal guardian, is eligible for reclassification after 12 months in Texas. However, if the student is a dependent of a resident parent or court-appointed legal guardian, both the year before and the year of his/her registration in an institution of higher education, he/she would automatically be considered a resident for tuition-purposes.
