Default international student tuition exemption with a US immigrant visa

I wonder when someone can benefit from having a US immigrant visa to study in a US university.
I mean, If we get just an acceptance from an American University, and go to the US with a US immigrant visa, as soon as we enter to US, can we have the right to pay just the resident tuition?
Or does we have to spend some time in US to have that kind of right?
If we should spend some time in US, does it differ from state to state?
If it differs where can I learn about that?

Most schools require you to live in the state where the school is
for 1 year then you submit a request to be eligible for in-state
resident tuition. Ask the school's the International Student
Services for more information. If you check out their websites,
it should show the phone numbers or emails address of the
ISS staff.

That depends on the rules of the university. Often, you have to live in
the particular state for some time, usually 1 year.

On the websites of the universities you are interested in.
You can also call their registrar's offices.
