Stroo stated he was keeping his Texas residency, so he will apply for a Texas LTC. Arkansas honors the Texas LTC, so no need for an Arkansas license, which he can't get anyway as they only issue to Active Duty Military and their Spouses as non-residents.

As for the address, his legal address is Texas, so use it.
I got all of that. A lot of people will maintain residency in both states under such a circumstance just because of the difference between the cost of in and out of state tuition and do so by establishing an off campus address in the state where going to school but while maintaining their home state's DL and voter registration.

With LTC, that can get you into serious trouble where it's not a huge deal with a DL.

It's always a good idea to maintain a permit in more than one state if for no other reason than the simple fact you can lose a wallet that your regular permit is carried in or have it stolen.

Just making sure he's aware of both issues and of course the importance of understanding the laws in both states relative to carry and use of force.
I am very familiar with college tuition and in-state vs out-of-state residency. There is no way to maintain legal residency in two states that I am aware of. Even with an off-campus address, you are only a resident of the state you came from unless you rescind that states residency and establish legal residency in the state where you are going to school. We had to emancipate our daughter so she could establish in-state residency in Missouri when she was going to Mizzou. She was no longer a Texas resident, and had a Missouri driver license and a Missouri residence address. She also had to work XXX hours over the summer between her freshman and sophomore years to be considered an resident per the university.

As for Arkansas State, they waive the non-resident fees for Texas residents, so there is no need to establish an Arkansas residency and give up the Texas resident status to avoid non-resident tuition costs.

As for losing your license, another state license would be a plus, but if you had it in your wallet as well, then it would also be gone. In this case, as I stated, Arkansas doesn't issue a non-resident license unless you are active duty military or or a spouse.
I'm aware of what the law states and I'm also aware of how many people have done it in the past.

All you need to establish residency in another state is to get an off campus address and meet the time requirements after doing so.

The point of having a second LTC would be to keep it in another location than the same wallet with your primary. When I travel I keep a second wallet in my luggage with my pocket passport, TX ID, and UT permit.

Lose either yon them and you still have a backup.

My son is applying for a LTC and has a couple of questions.

We can't get into the DPS site to fill out an application. Is the site down?

Second, he is going to college in Arkansas but his residency is still at home in Texas. Which address should he use for his mailing address - his home address or his college address? I would think his home address.
He can only maintain legal residency in one state. If he's going to school registered as an Arkansas resident he'll need to apply for his Texas license as a non resident. If he already has his AR permit it should help streamline the process.

If he's going to maintain his Texas residency then he should apply as a resident but it would be advisable to also pick up a non non resident AR permit as well if they allow for same.

Either way he'll need to stay well versed on the laws of both states and of course be informed of the laws in any other states he carries in via reciprocity.
