This is question 18 on the paper FAFSA.
Select your current state or country of legal residence. Select Foreign Country if your legal residence is in a foreign country.
Your answer represents the residency or domicile of your true, fixed, and permanent home. If you moved into a state for the sole purpose of attending a school, do not count that state as your state of legal residence.
Each state determines legal residency differently. You should contact your college’s financial aid office for assistance with state of legal residence qualifications.
