After becoming engaged I started law school in another state. I’m very cloes with my classmates, but am pretty sure no one would be able to come to the wedding since it’s so far, but I want them to feel included. Would it seem like I’m just looking for a gift if I send them an invite or will they appreciate the sentiment?

Invite them anyway. They might still be able to make it. Plus, they might even feel left out if you don’t invite them. If a lot of them don’t end up going, maybe afterward you can hold a small get together there.

If you would definitely invite them to a local wedding, I would still invite them. You can say that you know it’s a long way but you want them to know you would love them to be there. We put a note like that in the invites we sent to overseas guests (who we knew wouldn’t come), but you could just do it in person as well. Don’t mention anything about gifts 🙂

If they are your friends, they will definately appreciate an invite. Who knows; maybe they will be able to come. If not, at least they know you thought of them and will know that you appreciate their friendship.
