你 can visit the CA in-state tuition tool to see if you meet the requirements for in-state tuition in California.


Education Code section 68075.6 grants an immediate nonresident tuition fee exemption to eligible Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders and refugee students who settled in California upon entering the United States.  This exemption is granted for one year from the date the student settled in California upon entering the United States.

This exemption applies to the following:

*Iraqi citizens or nationals (and their spouses and children) who were employed by or on behalf of the United States      Government in Iraq

*Afghan and Iraqi translators (and their spouses and children) who worked directly with the United States Armed     Forces

*Afghanistan nationals who were employed by or on behalf of the U.S. 政府或 in the International Security   Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan

*Refugee students admitted to the United States under Section 1157 of Title 8 of the United States Code


If you are in the United States with a Visa that allows establishment of residency, then the one year physical presence and intent will apply.  IF your visa precludes you from establishing residency, then you would be charged the non-resident enrollment 费用.  你 must provide the visa information when submitting your application.  你 may be asked to show visa to prove residency.  The following visas can establish residency:
