    I am getting out of the army this summer and I dont want to move back to california. At the end of the year I am moving to colorado to go to school. There is about a $200-$300 per semester hour, price differance between resident and not resident prices. I would like to become a resident ASAP since it will take a year for my resident status is acceptable for the lower price. I can do the paperwork over here, just need to find an address to write down.
    Let me know if would be able to help and thanks :burb:

    Would renting a UPS store P.O. box be illeagal to use for this, if they would even know? I use one for business, and it has a normal type of address without haveing the P.O. in the address. Just a thought.:thinking:

    I thought most of the time, when you get out of the military you could change to any state you want.

    Not as easy as it sounds. I have been stationed at Ft. Carson for the past four years and just exited the Army a couple weeks ago. My intent was to attend the Law Enforcement Academy at one of the Community Colleges after I ETS'd. Resident cost approx. $4000, non-resident cost approx. $13000. Colorado has extremely strict regulations regarding resident tuition. Some of the qualifications are (off the top of my head):


    1. Voter Registration in Colorado
    2. Colorado Drivers License
    3. Vehicle Registration (with the very high ownership taxes paid, military exempt does not count)
    4. Colorado State taxes

    There are others, however I cannot remember them. These qualifications need to have been met for a minimum of a year to be considered valid.

    Even though I had a Colorado drivers license (only for the past 7 months) and maintained a residence in Colorado for years, I was not eligible for resident tuition AFTER my exit from the military. Only during my Active duty time was I considered a "Military Resident".

    Thank god I was offered a job before I had to go though this hassle!! Good luck and congrats on your ETS!!
