The following provides information on who is eligible for resident classification at the University of California.
All degree-seeking students should complete a Statement of Legal Residence (SLR) immediately after submitting their Statement of Intent to Register(SIR).
Official residence determinations are made only after the student's SLR is reviewed and any requested documentation is received by the University Registrar's office.
Online Statement of Legal Residence
Students readmitting after an absence of one year or more must also resubmit the SLR.
Nonresident students currently attending UCI and who have completed at least one term at UCI may file a Petition for Resident Classification with the
University Registrar's office, once they feel that they have met all UC residence requirements. Deadlines for filing the Petition are generally two weeks
before the fee payment deadline for each term the student is requesting reclassification.
INQUIRIES AND APPEALS
Inquiries regarding residence requirements, determination, and/or recognized exceptions should be directed to the UCI Residence Officer or the Residency Analyst.
No other university personnel are authorized to supply information relative to residence requirements for tuition purposes.
Students wishing to appeal their nonresident classification must appeal in writing to the Residency Analyst within 30 days of notification of the
UCI Residence Officer's final residence determination.
Appeals of nonresident determinations are reviewed solely by the UC Office of the General Counsel. Instructions for
