Residency Reclassification

Continuing Students

If you are a continuing student seeking to change your status from non-resident to resident, documentation is required to show you moved to California with the intent of making this state your permanent home and that you have severed all ties with your former state for one year period prior to the residence determination date (September 20th for the Fall semesters and January 25th for the Spring semesters). Visit the CSU Residency Site for more information.
