residency part i
Residency Part I

All students must be classified as either resident or non-resident for tuition purposes. Two factors are considered when determining residency classification:

  • Lived in California for at least one year and one day (physical presence)
  • Taken action to make California their legal residence for at least one year and one day prior to the start of the term (intent to reside)

Students need to prove both physical residence and intent to reside in order to be considered a resident for tuition purposes.

Providing Documentation

***As of August 1, 2011, the VA no longer pays out-of-state charges.

The following are examples that may demonstrate a student’s intent to reside in California. At least one of the documents must be dated more than one year prior to the start of the term:

      • CA Drivers license
      • Filing California State income taxes
      • California resident vehicle registration
  • Employment or carrying on of a business in California
  • Bank statements or bills showing a California address
  • Ownership of property or apartment rental contract/lease in California
  • Active membership in California service or social organizations
  • Verification of California public assistance
  • Transcripts showing California school attendance
residency part ii
Residency Part II

Examples of actions that are inconsistent with a claim for California residency:

  • Claiming residency in another state
  • Voting in another state
  • Petitioning for a divorce or lawsuit as a resident in another state
  • Claiming residency at an out-of-state institution
  • Filing as a nonresident on income tax
  • Maintaining out of state driver’s license/vehicle registration
  • In California just for school

Note to Active Duty:

  • If you’re from another state and continue to go to school in CA when discharged, you must change your residential status to CA. Otherwise you will be considered an out-of-state resident.
