Texas Resident Receiving In-State at Oklahoma SLP


Recommended Posts

Hello!

I was recently admitted to the Speech-language Pathology graduate programs at Oklahoma State University, University of Tulsa, and University of Central Oklahoma. I am a Texas resident and was told that Oklahoma usually gives out in-state tuition to Texas residents... Is this true? How do I try and get in-state tuition? If anyone has any tips or advice on what they did, please let me know! I am very confused. Thank you!

I know that some states have arrangements where you can have lower tuition based on the relationships between the state you're from and the state where the school is located, so maybe that's what the person was referring to? My understanding is that there is an agreement for programs in the Midwestern states and another one for the West Coast states. If this person was correct, perhaps there is an agreement like this between Texas and Oklahoma? (Do they count as the Midwest? As a East Coaster, my perception of what counts as "Midwest" is probably very skewed, haha!)

Congrats on your acceptance!! I went to Oklahoma State for undergrad and we have a lot of Texas students there! While I am not completely sure, I have heard about the Texas resident in state tuition privilege, but only among undergrad students and possibly merit based. But don’t take it for what it’s worth, you should call the OSU registrar’s office! They would be happy to answer this question!There are also a lot of helpful info on their website on how to qualify for in state. In order to qualify for in state I think your intention to stay in oklahoma needs to not be school. The standard is actually rather vague and it is really up to the university to determine if you qualify or not (I had this convo with them many times lol) I hope you choose Oklahoma State as it is an absolutely wonderful program!
