I have lived and worked in Virginia for one year, pay Virginia income taxes, obtained a Virginia license, registered to vote and registered my vehicle in Virginia. Do I qualify for in-state tuition?

Maybe.  The above “factors” are evidence of domiciliary intent but are not determinative because Virginia law requires consideration of other matters.  If you are a dependent student or a minor, your domicile will be presumed to be that of your parent(s).  If your residence or physical presence in Virginia is primarily for educational purposes, you will not qualify for in-state tuition even if you achieved all of the above factors.  If you entered the University as an out-of-state student, you must present clear and convincing evidence to rebut the presumption that you are residing in Virginia primarily to attend school.
