California Residency Requirement

To attend any of the Los Angeles Community Colleges as a resident of California, a student is required to have been a California resident for more than one year immediately preceding the “Residency Determination Date.” The “Residency Determination Date” is the day before classes begin. Residence is defined as a union of act and intent. (Additional regulations apply to non-United States citizens.)

Non-Resident Tuition Fee

The Board of Trustees adopted a non-resident tuition fee of $222 per semester unit for students attending the District colleges who are non-residents of the state. Furthermore, for non-resident students who are both citizens and residents of a foreign country, the non-resident tuition fee is also $222 per semester unit fee AND a $35 cash only application processing fee. These fees are subject to change each academic year.

LACCD Board Rule 8100.15 states that “students who are citizens and residents of a foreign country, or who are legally precluded from establishing residency in California, shall be entitled to exemption from nonresident fees on the basis of individual financial need in accordance with regulations adopted by the Chancellor. Such individual exemptions shall not be granted in excess of ten percent (10%) of the District’s students who are both citizens and residents of a foreign country in the applicable term. If you meet the eligibility requirements in question #9 on the Nonresident Tuition Fee Waiver Affidavit on the opposite side of this page, you may be eligible to receive a nonresident tuition exemption.

Beginning with the Fall 2008 semester, nonresident students who were admitted as “Special Part Time Students Grades K-12” and enroll in more than six (6) units will be subject to the nonresident tuition fee for all units taken.

Resident students admitted as “Special Part Time Students Grades K-12” and enrolling in 11 or fewer units are exempt from enrollment fees charged for all terms (including summer) pursuant to Education Code section 76300.
