    No need to be so rude... the OP is an international student, so a) probably doesn't know how tuition fees work, and b) won't get loans anyway.

    OP: what scholarships have you been looking at? You can get some especially for internationals.

    but i'm not an international student if i go to the states?
    i mean wth is an international student anyways, i've never known if that applies to me!! --> american passport holder, was born in america, went to school in america (albeit only for a year), american family, but graduating hs in europe = OP or not?

    EDIT: thanks, i got the whole OP/TS thing down now

    You are the OP, because in this thread you wrote the original post, making you the original poster. Because TSR is a mainly UK based forum, to most people here you are considered international, meaning that not all advice given will apply to you, as the policies governing your situation are possibly different to those here.

    I guess you're still considered to be an international, because you aren't graduating in your home country

    I was in a similar situation to you, but I don't have residency in any one state as I've never lived there. From what I understand of it, you pay 'home' fees in your state, and out of state/international fees elsewhere. But double check on each universities website, and also any info from your home state you can find as well, I don't know if you'd be eligible for federal support.

    It is all very confusing for Americans living outside the USA...
