California Residency Requirements, lower college tuition



California residency requirements: "To be considered a California resident for purposes of fees, an out-of-state student must have lived in California for more than one year preceding the residence determination date, relinquish residence in other states, show an intent to establish residency in California and demonstrate financial independence.

Unmarried undergraduates from other states qualify as financially independent if they were not claimed by their parents or others as dependents for tax purposes for two preceding tax years and if their annual income is sufficient to meet their needs.

All married students and unmarried graduate and professional students from other states qualify as financially independent if their parents or others have not claimed them as dependents for tax purposes for the preceding year.

Other out-of-state students who qualify as financially independent include veterans of the U.S. armed services, students with legal dependents other than a spouse, students with both parents deceased, students who are wards of the court, and students who are at least 24 years of age by December 31 of the year they seek to be classified as residents.

Students holding non-immigrant visas (F1, J1, etc.) may not establish California residency for purposes of fees.

Students who cannot establish California residency under these rules will be required to pay out-of-state tuition as well as UC and campus fees. Non-California resident students pay an additional cost in tuition and fees.

<Note: California is among seven U.S. States that have generously decided to let the taxpayers provide free tuition for illegals. I find this offensive, since, if U.S. citizens come here from other states, they pay tuition, and many of our own residents are struggling to keep their children in college.

Given that California is broke, and broken, I do not understand.

Additional Specifics on California Residency Laws

Under California law, each campus must determine the residence of all new and returning students to verify California residency requirements... Nonresidents are required to pay nonresident tuition and meet other conditions.

Generally, to be eligible for a resident classification, an adult (independent) student must have established and maintained permanent residence in California at least one year prior to the residence determination date. Minors (dependent students) derive residence from their parents.

Proof of residence requires evidence of both physical presence and intent to remain indefinitely in California at least one year before the residence determination date.


In addition, other rules and exceptions apply. Failure to complete all residence questions may result in a nonresident classification or denial of admission.

You will be asked to complete a form during the applications process for the public universities/B>
