Residency

California Residency for Tuition Purposes

The determination of residency for purposes of the CSU is not to determine if a student is a resident or non-resident in the state of California, but rather determine whether a student pays university fees on an in-state or out-of-state basis. Under California law, Stanislaus State must determine the residence status of all new and returning students.

The term "California resident" for tuition purposes may differ from other definitions of California residency. A person who has a California driver's license, vehicle registration, or who is a California resident for tax, voting, or welfare purposes may have established legal residence in the state but might not necessarily be considered a resident for tuition purposes. If determined to be a nonresident for tuition purposes, nonresident tuition will apply.
