加州居民的学生支付州内学费为每单元46美元, 而非居民的学生需要支付州外的学费,每单元370美元. (注:学费为2021-22学年.社区大学的入学费用是由加利福尼亚州立法机构规定的. 所有费用可能会有变动.

The term "California resident" for fee purposes may differ from other definitions of California residency. A person who has a California driver's license and/or vehicle registration or who is a California resident for tax, 投票, or welfare purposes may have established legal residence in the state but not necessarily be considered a resident for fee purposes.

居留资格

为了有资格在加州居住,学生必须做到以下几点:

成为美国公民或持有美国移民身份,但不妨碍获得永久居住权.

The following visa status holders cannot establish residency regardless of the length of time in California: B-1, B-2, C, D-1, D-2, F-1, F-2, H-2, H-3, J-1, J-2, M-1, M-2, O-2, P-1, P-2, P-3, P-4, Q, 和TN / TD.

如果你是这类签证的持有者,但你已经申请了身份变更,那么你可以提交居留重新分类的申请. 你的居留决定日期是基于你的身份变更申请的日期. 请确保附上一份 注意的行动 从INS进行状态调整.

Verify physical presence in California for at least one year and one day prior to the first day of the semester.

本学期第一天为确定住院日. 在加州居住12个月并不意味着你就有资格申请州内的学费.

确认您将加州作为永久居住地的意向.

根据加利福尼亚州法律, 如果你来加州主要是为了上加州大学, 那么你就没有资格申请州内的学费.

你必须通过官方和/或法律文件证明你已经永久搬到加州,而不是在你上大学期间暂时住在加州, 不管你学习多长时间.

与非居民父母或监护人建立财务独立.

学生 under 19 years of age and unmarried typically derive California residency from their parents. 家长必须符合资格要求,并提供证明其在加州的实际存在和有意在加州永久居住的文件. 注:年龄一般在19岁以上 从父母那里获得居住权.

另外, 根据加州制定的指导方针,寻求从非居民身份重新分类为居民身份的学生可以从任何非居民父母或监护人那里证明经济独立.

建立财务独立, 申请重新分类的学生,必须在当前及前三(3)个历年证明其符合以下标准的程度:

  1. The student has not been claimed as an exemption for state or federal tax purposes by their non-resident parents.
  2. 这名学生还没有从他们的非居民父母那里收到超过750美元.
  3. The student has not lived in the home of their non-resident parents for more than six weeks in any given year.

如果不能满足整个期间的所有财务独立标准,并不一定会导致被列为非居民,如果在非居民居住一年的表现和意图足够强烈的话. 然而, 如果不能满足本历年和紧前历年的所有三项财务独立标准,通常将被列为非居民, 因为财政独立对那些年来说意义更大.

经济独立, 或者缺少它, 在要求改叙的前一年的第二个和第三个历年,将连同决定改叙意向的所有其他有关因素一并审议, 没有特别重视财务独立因素. 财务独立的证据可以下列形式提出:

  • Affidavits signed by student and parent indicating the extent to which the three criteria listed above have been met
  • Copies of the federal and state income tax returns filed by student and/or parent for the current and any applicable preceding calendar years

在您提交申请和文件之前,请与居住专家交谈.
