Student Residence Classification: Revision and Review of Regulations.
Nussbaum, Tom; Close, Catherine
This report proposes regulations for the implementation of California's Uniform Student Residency Act by the state's community colleges. First, background information is provided on three laws: (1) the Uniform Student Residency Act, which establishes rules for use in classifying college students as residents or non-residents; (2) legislation requiring state agencies to review their regulations; and (3) legislation adding financial independence as a factor in determining residency. In addition, the report cites a study by the Auditor General which found that residence questionnaires and admissions applications did not ask enough information to determine residence and that, as a result of misclassifications, not all non-resident students were paying non-resident tuition. Finally, revised regulations for student residence classification are recommended, covering uniform residency requirements, residence determination date, classification procedures, residence questionnaires and proof, physical presence, intent to reside permanently in California, 1-year waiting period, reestablished residence, financial independence, self-supporting and waiting period exceptions, military dependents and personnel, aliens, refugees, credentialed public school employees, students under custody of resident adults, agricultural employment, appeal procedures, refunds, and waivers. The Auditor General's report on misclassification, and attendance and tuition data are appended. (AYC)
