Nonresident Supplemental Tuition

If you have not been living in California with the intent to make it your permanent home for a minimum of 366 days immediately prior to the residence determination date of the term for which classification as a California resident is requested, you must pay a nonresident fee in addition to all other fees. The rules and regulations for establishing residency for tuition purposes are defined by the University of California Board of Regents, which is authorized by the California Legislature (SOR 110.2), to provide classification for a tuition differential between resident and nonresident students.

Reduced Nonresident Supplemental Tuition. Effective Fall 2006, the annual nonresident supplemental tuition is reduced by 100 percent for graduate doctoral students who have advanced to candidacy, subject to the understanding that: (a) a graduate doctoral student may receive the reduced nonresident fee rate for a maximum of three years, and (b) any such student who continues to be enrolled, or who re-enrolls after receiving the reduced fee for three years, will be charged the full nonresident fee rate in effect at that time.
