At the time of the application (or reapplication) for admission, a student’s residency status will be determined based on the answers provided on the application for admission.
Students classified as nonresidents who feel they should be reclassified can do so by filling out the IVC California Residency Reclassification Questionnaire. Ensure you provide all possible documentation available to assist us in deciding with your case. For more information, visit Residency Reclassification.
