UC tuition is different for resident and nonresident students, and determining residence follows a specific process. Certain students may claim an exemption from nonresident tuition.
Guidelines concerning residence for tuition purposes are published by the UC Office of General Counsel
Residence status for tuition purposes is determined only after the student has been admitted to UCLA
Continuing nonresident UCLA students seeking resident status may petition for a classification change
Some nonresident students may qualify for an exemption (including AB540) to nonresident supplemental tuition
All incoming students must complete a Statement of Legal Residence
Students recently denied resident status may appeal to the UC Office of General Counsel
