About this site

This website summarizes UC’s policy on residency regulations and is not a complete explanation of residence for tuition purposes. 

The UC Residence Policy and Guidelines (pdf) are utilized by campus residence deputies and the Office of the General Counsel (on appeal) to assess students' eligibility for residence classification for purposes of tuition.

Changes may be made to the UC Residence Policy and Guidelines at any time. Before submitting a Statement of Legal Residence (SLR) or Petition for Residency Classification, you should carefully review the policy to ensure you comply with the most recent requirements and contact a campus residence deputy with any questions.
