Will RPI status provide in-state tuition?

While the BSEOIM specifically bans RPI status immigrants from receiving Federal student loans, the Obama Immigration Reform actually calls for the repeal of Section 505 of IIRAIRA, which bans states from giving in-state tuition to illegal immigrants.  Going forward, as long as you can prove that you are a resident of a particular state (the requirements vary for each state), you will be eligible for instate tuition and that can mean huge savings.  So, if you would like to go to college in a particular state but live elsewhere, this maybe a good time to plan your move there as one of the many things that you need to do in order to plan for your preparation for adjusting to RPI status.
