So, I applied to University Of Nevada Las Vegas. I am currently a California resident. However, my grandparents have a house in Las Vegas and i dont think its fair that we have to pay out of state fee's when we're putting money into the vegas community. DMV told me I can possibly get a temporary I.D thats good for four years. How would i go about doing this? Is there anyway i can get the in state or at least reduced tuition?
Also, to obtain Nevada residency, I would be willing to surrender my California I.D. but what would be the losses and benefits to doing this? thanks for any help!

you are an out of state student in Nev and will continue to be an out of state student your entire college career there, just so you know. So you can be prepared to pay that outrageous tuition for all 4 years. You moved to Nev for the ONLY purpose as to go to college (as evidence by your admission application), and that means that no matter how long you live there, you will ALWAYS be an out of state student.
Surrendering an ID and getting one somewhere else does not mean anything and won't make you a resident of anything.
CHOOSING to go to an expensive out-of-state school is again a CHOICE! If you don't have the money, then you need to stay in CA.
I understand your plight, but when you say "WE'RE putting money into the Vegas community," don't you really mean your GRANDPARENTS are putting money into the Vegas community? YOU are not actually putting any money into Vegas, your grandparents are.
I think you're going to have to decide which you want more, to claim Nevada residency and attend UNLV at a lower cost, or maintain CA residency and keep all the benefits associated with it.
