- Have attended at least 2 years of high school in Connecticut
- Have graduated (or received the equivalent of a high school diploma) from a Connecticut high school
- Is registered as an entering student, or is enrolled at a public institution of higher education in Connecticut
- Complete an Application for In-State Tuition (option C) to request reclassification to in-state status, which includes an affidavit stating that he or she has filed an application to legalize his or her immigration status, or will file such an application as soon as he or she is eligible to do so.
