This section lists exceptions (to the policy) and exemptions (receiving a waiver) when applying for residency for tuition purposes. These are special cases.

About Exemptions

In some cases, students who do not meet the residency requirements may be eligible for a nonresident supplemental tuition exemption.

Depending on the exemption, you may be considered a resident, but you may be required to submit documents every semester or every year to maintain eligibility for the nonresident supplemental tuition waiver. In other cases (for example, AB 540, former member of the military, etc.) you might be classified as a nonresident but will receive a waiver that will cover the nonresident supplemental tuition.

Note: These exemptions remain in effect so long as the student remains eligible and the UC Regents and the State of California continue to waive and fund the nonresident supplemental tuition.
