It should not be construed asthe actual expression of the laws used by admissionsofficers for residency determination. Reference should bemade to Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 22800) ofDivision 16.5 of the Education Code, and regulations of theBoard of Governors of the California Community Colleges inChapter 1 (commencing with Section 5400) of Division 5 ofPart IV of Title 5 of the California Administrative Code.Resident - Any student who has legal residence in Californiafor one year or more immediately preceding the residencedetermination date and who provides evidence of the intentto make California his/her home for other than a temporarypurpose shall be classified as a resident.Non-resident - Any student who has not had legal residencein California for one year or more immediately preceding theresidence determination date, or who has had legal residencein California for one year or more immediately preceding theresidence determination date but cannot provide evidenceof the intent to make California his/her home for other thana temporary purpose shall be classified as a non-resident.Residence Determination Date - The residencedetermination date is the day immediately preceding the firstAdmissions / 5

Cypress College 2001-2002day of instruction of the fall, or spring, or summer term as setby the Board of Trustees, during which the student proposesto attend Cypress College.Each person enrolled in, or applying for admission to, aCalifornia Community College is, for purposes of admissionand/or tuition, classified as a "resident," or a " non-resident."If a student is classified as a resident, admission to thecollege will be accomplished without non-resident tuition.Students classified as non-residents will be required to paytuition in an amount set by the governing board of the districtof enrollment.Generally, residency requires actual physical presence inCalifornia, coupled with an intent to become a resident.One's state of mind is subjective; hence, it is necessary tolook at objective indications of the student's intent. Someexamples of evidence that aid the college admissions officerin identifying that intent, but which are not individually decisive,are possession of a document of California origin such as adriver's license, a receipt for registration to vote, a currentlease, rental agreement, or rent receipt showing the student'sname and address and place of residence; a library card,state or federal income tax information, property ownership,or an active bank account. Any two or a combination of suchexamples gives some indication to the admissions officer ofthe student's intent. Possession of the necessary intent,coupled with the durational requirement of one year, willsatisfy the residency requirements, and the student may beclassified as a resident student.Unmarried minors (those under 18 years of age) are by lawincapable of establishing their own residence notwithstandingtheir physical presence within California. An admissionsofficer will use the following guidelines for the determinationof a minor applicant's residence:If both of the minor's parents are living, the residence of theminor will be the residence of the parent with whom the minoris living or with whom the minor was last living. In caseswhere one parent is deceased, the minor's residence will bethat of the living parent. In cases of adoption or guardianshipwhere either natural parent is not living, the residence of theadopting parent or the guardian is the residence of the minor.A minor whose parents are not living and who does not havea legal guardian may establish an independent residence.However, a student who is a minor and has a parent livingmay not, by independent action, establish residence, nor willthe appointment of guardian or the relinquishment of theparent's right of control give that minor the ability to establishan independent residence.ExceptionsIf the student would otherwise be classified as a nonresident,but fits within one of the following exceptions, a residentclassification may be granted until such classification isobtained.The exceptions are: Minors who remain in California after their parents, whohad previously resided within California, moved from thestate prior to the resident determination date, and the minors6 / Admissionscontinue full-time attendance at a tax-supported college inCalifornia, will retain resident classification. A student who is a minor and who has been self-supportingand in California for one year preceding the day before theterm, will be granted resident classification if said selfsupport can be proven. A student who has not been an adult for more than one yearprior to the resident determination date may add parentalpre-18-years-of-age residence, if any, to the post-18-yearresidence to obtain durational requirement. A child or a spouse of a member of the armed forcesstationed in California may be granted resident classification.A student who is a member of the armed forces not assignedto California for purposes of education will be entitled toresident classification until the one year necessary to establishresidency has been spent in California. Adult aliens lawfully admitted for permanent residence andresidents of California for one year after being grantedpermanent residency will be given resident classification.Minor aliens may use their parent's durational presence tosatisfy the one year requirement. A student holding a valid credential authorizing service ina public school and employed in a certificated position by acommunity college district will be given resident classification. A student who is an apprentice within the meaning ofSection 3077 of the Labor Code is entitled to residentclassification.OUT-OF-STATE STUDENTSOut-of-state applicants may be admitted to the college on thesame basis as California residents except that they will berequired to pay non-resident tuition prescribed by the Boardof Trustees to partially cover the costs of instruction.INTERNATIONAL STUDENTSA limited number of international students may be admittedto Cypress College.
