A California resident is defined as one who has established both physical presence and intent to make California their permanent home for more than one year and one day from the Residency Determination Date. Residency for tuition purposes at Modesto Junior College has four basic components:
A non-resident student is one who has not resided in the State of California for more than one year and one day immediately preceding the Residency Determination Date as well as a student who is precluded from establishing domicile in the United States. Non-residents still may attend the College subject to non-resident tuition in addition to all other College mandatory fees. Students with visas, which require residency in the country granting the visa, will be required to pay a nonresident tuition fee and the enrollment fee. For the most up to date fees please see the MJC Business Services Office page.
Students who have been classified as non-residents may petition to be reclassified as California residents if their status has changed. The form is available in the Enrollment Services Offices and must be submitted IN-PERSON with the appropriate documentation showing both physical presence and intent to make California their permanent home. Reclassification requests must be submitted prior to the start of the semester in which reclassification is requested to be effective. Please see the Residency Consideration Form for more information.
Appropriate residency documentation may include, but is not limited to the following:
Financial Independence documents:
All proofs must include the following information: STUDENT’S NAME & CALIFORNIA ADDRESS by the RESIDENCY DETERMINATION DATE for the applying semester
Due to the complexity of determining residency, we reserve the right to ask for any additional documentation as may be needed on a case by case basis (To be determined by an Admissions & Records Specialist).
