On most accounts, that would be 6 months or more depending on any programs you are intending to apply for. In some cases, it also depends on your country of origin as well. I would need more details in order to be more helpful.

To be eligible for in state tuition, you must have lived in the state for at least 12 months.

If you are buying it as an investor, where you live does not make a difference as you don’t need to be a resident of the state to get a loan.

Is the real question though how long do you have to live here to get in-state tuition?

It depends on whose definition of "texas resident" you're trying to comply with.

For "in state tuition" the requirement is 12 months.

If you're trying to determine "texas resident" for loan programs or anything else, please contact me.
