    (This is from a decade ago, so take it for what it's worth)

    Out of state tuition was killing me, so after my freshman year, I took a full year off to get residency.

    The University of Texas needed proof of 12 months of continuous Texas residency. Proof consisted of my apartment lease and a letter from my employer (and pay stubs) showing 12 months of full time employment in Texas. I also could not be declared a dependent on my parents' taxes, and attend any other university or college in Texas during that time.

    I don't really see that as being a problem. I think with your parents being local, you're golden.

    Aren't you native CO? I wouldn't think you'd have any issue.

    I had lived there from 1999 through early 2009 and my parents still live there

    I have since moved to NY and have gotten a NY DL and whatnot

    I don't see why not. I misread your original post when I explained my situation. I think you'll be fine.
