Resident and nonresident classifications for purposes of tuition and fees are determined by the Residence Deputy and based on the Statement of Legal Residence (SLR) and supporting documentation. The Residence Deputy reserves the right to request additional documentation if they deem it necessary to make a determination.

To be considered for a resident classification:

  • You must provide clear and convincing evidence that you have satisfied all UC residence requirements.
  • You must complete an SLR before the deadline; if you miss the deadline, you will be classified as a nonresident and will be responsible for all nonresident fees.
