Definitions for "Out-of-State Student"
Submenu An out-of-state student has not met the legal residency requirements for the state, and is charged as a non-Michigan resident tuition rate.
One from a state other than that in which the school is located. Because most state colleges and universities have much higher tuition rates for out-of-state students, many people attempt to establish legal residence in the same state as their school.
A student who is not a legal resident of the state in which he/she attends school.
