What does 'OOS college' mean?

So I've been seeing this term 'OOS college' floating around, but I'm not exactly sure what it means. Can someone clarify the meaning of 'OOS college' for me?

Certainly! 'OOS college' stands for 'Out-of-State college.' It refers to attending a college or university that is located outside of your state of residence. For example, if you live in California and decide to attend a college in New York, you would be attending an OOS college. Out-of-state colleges often have different tuition rates for in-state and out-of-state students, with out-of-state students typically paying higher tuition fees.
