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.
Students must meet the following requirements:
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 a non-resident may petition to be reclassified as a California resident if their status has changed. The form is available in the Enrollment Services Offices and must be submitted IN-PERSON with the appropriate documentation. Reclassification requests must be submitted prior to the start of the semester in which reclassification is requested. 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: 1) Students name 2) California Address 3) Residency determination date
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).

Signed into law in October 2001, California Assembly Bill 540 (AB 540) is a bill that provides an exemption to the requirement to pay nonresident tuition. California Community College students who are granted an AB 540 exemption, will be charged in-state tuition and fees, and not the supplemental tuition charged to nonresidents.
Students (including undocumented students) who, for various reasons, are classified as nonresidents may be eligible. You must meet all three of the following requirements to be eligible. Please see the AB 540 Exemption form for more information.
1. Time and coursework requirementsA. Attendance for three full-time years or the equivalent at any combination of the following:
ORB. Three years of California high school coursework and three years of total attendance at a California
elementary school, California secondary school, or any combination of the two2. Degree or Unit Requirements
You also must have signed the California Nonresident Exemption Request, which states that you meet all the requirements to qualify for AB 540 status and, if you are undocumented, are in the process of adjusting your immigration status (or will do so as soon as you are eligible).
