If youngest winds up joining Eldest at his school, our best move in retirement would be to grab an apartment somewhere in that state and establish residency. That alone will save us close to $20,000/kid/year in tuition alone!

The couple of states that I know about require the student to have lived in the state for a year before the beginning of the first school year, in order to be considered a resident for in-state tuition. And if he starts out as a non-resident the first year, he will not qualify as a resident in subsequent years even though he was living in the state during that first year -- he'd have to do the qualifying year before enrolling for the first time.
